Arcelor Mittal (MT.AS) issued a claim emission which will be used to reduce debt. Since steel prices seem to bottom out i decided to hand over another € 231 in order to get 105 additional shares. The total amount of Arcelor Mittal shares became 255 at an average cost of € 8.54.

31 shares of  Yara (YAR.OL) were bought for NOK 10175 or approximately € 1101. Yara is a Norwegian chemical company mainly producing fertilizer. The Norwegian crown is relatively cheap at the moment and I expect the demand for fertilizer to increase on the long run.
