-         Reinvested my Gazprom dividends into the shares. Bought 1,000 Gazprom shares which is 4.1% in annual dividends (I have 24,000 shares and bought 1,000 with the dividends).
-         I also bought my first 100 shares in iShares Core DAX UCITS ETF, the index tracking   30 companies that are either domiciled in Germany or a minimum of 33% of their stock turnover is traded of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and they are domiciled in an EU or EFTA country.  Direct investment into the 30 largest and most traded companies in Germany (Bayer, Daimler, Siemens, BASF, Allianz, etc..). The fund has relatively low expense ration (0.16% total expense ratio). Current fund size about 10 bn USD. It pays dividends annually at about 2%  return.
