Purchase
Timing:  We bought near recent lows.
Reason:  The company has been having issues with DHL, which represents about 90% of the ABX's revenues. We believe that even if the DHL contract is canceled, the company will be profitable and that the market has overreacted.

Sale
Timing:  
Reason:  ATSG has lost its contract with DHL. Thus far, the company has not realized the gains we anticipated from "putting" excess aircraft to DHL.
