-         I bought some more Gazprom shares to re-invest dividends from last year, namely 2,000 shares at 6.6 USD (4.75 EUR) and paid commission to my trader of 35 USD. Price paid was 9,460 EUR or 12,866 USD. As it was bought at hysteria time around Crimea, the shares went up by $ 0.88, bringing me almost $1,764. Forecast for Gazprom dividends is between o.24 EUR to 0.32 EUR which at the current share price 4.2% to 5.7% only in dividends.

-         I need to start actively thinking about diversification – where to invest the money, to keep the portfolio less volatile.  This one of the main targets for this year.
