Abstract: Let $ E$ be a star-shaped Banach space of analytic functions on the open unit disk $ \mathbb{D}$. It is assumed that the unilateral shift $ S : z\to zf$ and the backward shift $ T : f\to \frac{f-f(0)}{ z}$ are bounded on $ E$ and that their spectrum is the closed unit disk.

Let $ M$ be a closed $ z$-invariant subspace of $ E$ such that $ \dim(M/zM)=1$, and let $ g\in M$. The main result of the paper states that if $ g$ has an analytic extension to $ \mathbb{D} \cup D(\zeta,r)$ for some $ r>0$, with $ g(\zeta) \neq 0$, and if $ S$ and $ T$ satisfy the ``nonquasianalytic condition''

$\displaystyle \sum_{n\ge 0}\frac{\log\Vert S^n\Vert+\log \Vert T^n\Vert}{ 1+n^2}<+\infty, $

then $ \zeta$ does not belong to the spectrum of the compression $ S_M : f+M\to zf +M$ of the unilateral shift to the quotient space $ E/M$. This shows in particular that $ \mathrm{Spec}(S_M)=\{1\}$ for some $ z$-invariant subspaces $ M$ of weighted Hardy spaces that were constructed by N. K. Nikol'skiĭ in the 1970s by using the Keldysh method.
