Purchase
Timing:  We bought below the six month low.
Reason:  Energy prices are very low. In the long term, we expect energy prices to rise and Williams is a solid company.

Sale
Timing:  
Reason:  Natural gas prices are half what they were six months ago. Inventories continue to be high. Williams is already trading at a relatively high multiple of earnings. We expect the stock price will decline as the company's earnings soften.
