I had a small amount of money sitting in a dormant brokerage account in the UK. Having finally got around to activating the account, I purchased some shares in Tesco (LN:TSCO) last week. The shares have been disappointing but with the UK economy showing signs of recovery, the loss making US operations being disposed of and the move to a JV vehicle in China, I am hopeful that the worst is now behind this company (possibly Europe will continue to disappoint). Even if it takes time to return to growth, the dividend yield of around 4% means that I am being paid while I wait.
I paid GBP3.56 per share.
