Purchase
Timing:  We bought near the six month high.
Reason:  Low oil prices traditionally improve the company's margins, so this is a good time to buy.

Sale
Timing:  0
Reason:  MUSA competes in the gas station market, which is highly competitive. Although margins have been improving the last few years, we anticipate that margins will decline again with rising gasoline prices. The contract with Walmart expires in 2017 and may not be renewed or may be renewed with less favorable terms.
