Purchase
Timing:  We bought near the six month high.
Reason:  Comcast is one of the top internet providers. COVID-19 has increased demand for working, shopping, and learning remotely, and we believe that some of the shifts will be permanent. Comcast continues to increase speeds. The new streaming service, Peacock, will be available to Comcast subscribers in 2021. The subscription model reduces risk and the common stock has an attractive dividend yield.

Sale
Timing:  x
Reason:  Comcast has not been a high growth stock. It has a reasonably high dividend yield, but the total return is comparatively low relative to our other holdings. More households are switching from cable to streaming services. Comcast's streaming platform is not particularly user friendly. Other platforms are engaging in a bidding war for content which is likely to hurt Comcast's margins in the future.
