Purchase
Timing:  We bought at the top of the six month range.
Reason:  Plantronics offers high performance headphones. The latest iPhone comes without a headphone jack and Plantronic offers wireless headphones. Plantronic also offers products for use with VR games, a market we forecast will grow dramatically in the next few years.

Sale
Timing:  x
Reason:  Plantronics has been losing market share in a shrinking market. The price has declined precipitously over the last year. Plantronics' acquisition of Polycom has left the company with high debt. The acquisition has not produced the bottom-line growth that analysts expected.
