Recent Swap: NEL ASA for Nordea Bank AB

NEL reported somewhat weak results. Weak mainly in order intake but as I anticipate challenging investment environment to persist (high interest rates, possibly even a recession) I decided to sell my minor tail position of 2000 shares at 7,05 NOK per share. I sold majority of my position around 30 NOK and original intention was to hold on to this tail long enough to see if NEL will eventually become an established dividend paying company. In current environment I decided to switch to Nordea Bank and bought 100 shares for 9,97 EUR per share as it appears to be very reasonably valued and is benefitting from higher interest rates. It would however be hit by full blown recession but let’s see how the winter goes. Anyway this move positions the portfolio to be more in line with primary strategy of focusing in dividend paying stocks.
