Purchase
Timing:  The stock is close to six month low and appears to be rebounding upward.
Reason:  Group 2 analyzed this stock and determined its price target to be $40.00.

Sale
Timing:  
Reason:  The business model looks less attractive than when we invested. Companies have not switched to "virtual" meetings at the rate predicted post September 11.
