Marina Berlusconi buys Mediaset shares

Italian PM's daughter shells out nearly 500,000 euros

ROME -- Marina Berlusconi, daughter of Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, has purchased 130,000 shares in Mediaset, the media giant her father controls, the younger Berlusconi's office announced Tuesday.

Berlusconi made the transaction Friday for just short of 500,000 euros ($680,000), an expensive vote of support for the beleaguered shares, which have been among the worst performers on the Italian Stock Exchange's Media index this year. In two sessions since the purchase, the investment has netted a profit of 47,000 euros ($64,000).
