S&P (Purchase Date):$1,459.68 S&P (Sale Date):$1,506.33

Timing:  We bought near the six month high.
Reason:  The company has a small portfolio of successful products. They have a large proportion of the US thin prep cervical cancer screening market, and are expanding into Europe. Their other products are at an earlier stage, but are superior to existing products. We anticipate the company will grow significantly.

Reason:  CYTC was acquired by Hologic for a combination of cash and stock.
