Purchase
Timing:  We bought near the six month low (including adjustments for share split).
Reason:  We increased our holdings after a pullback in the stock price because it was an opportunity to pick up a good stock at a discount.

Sale
Timing:  0
Reason:  We have made excellent returns on MasterCard. We remain very interested in payment systems, but we decided to sell our position in MasterCard and divide the investment between Visa and PayPal, both of which we believe have better positions in emerging payment mechanisms.
