Purchase
Timing:  The stock is trading near its six month high.
Reason:  The company will be opening a major new resort soon. The stock has been depressed owing to projects postponed during the recent credit crisis.

Sale
Timing:  After a sharp run up in prices, the share price has declined for the last six weeks.
Reason:  The company has faced unexpected delays in receiving necessary permits for properties in Macao. There have been allegations of bribery, as well. We believe the company will delay plans to expand in Macao, and that the near term revenues we anticipated will not be realized.
