Purchase
Timing:  We bought near the middle of the six month trading range.
Reason:  One of the few bright spots in consumer spending has been in on-line purchases. Akamai is used by a large fraction of Fortune 500 companies and has the best technology currently available.

Sale
Timing:  0
Reason:  We chose to sell based on increased competition in the marketplace as well as a great deal of insider selling that may indicate future struggles.
