Purchase
Timing:  We bought near the six month high.
Reason:  We bought AMD as a hedge against the possiblility that Intel (which we own) will lose its competitive edge. Recently, Intel has come out with new techonology first, and has maintained its market lead. However, AMD generally introduces a similar produce shortly afterwards. In general, AMD products are viewed as superiour by "geeks."

Sale
Timing:  
Reason:  We sold AMD to refocus our strategy on small and mid cap stocks.
