Recent Buy: Nordea Bank AB

Nordea dropped today after reporting 3rd quarter results. Valuation was just so compelling that I decided to buy additional 100 shares for 10,50 EUR per share. I don’t expect this to be exceptionally long position as I suspect that Sampo has big plans for Nordea. I wouldn’t be surprised if they complete the relocation to Finland next year, optimise the operations including the IT infrastructure and announce a merger in 2019 which could complete in 2020. They appear to be in excellent shape going forward and the gradually rising interest rates should work in their favour as well.
