Purchase
Timing:  The stock is trading in the lower part of its six month range.
Reason:  The stock was purchased in the Kenstington account to match the holdings in the Davidson account. Skywest continues to be a profitable regional airline. Airline stocks are currently depressed due to fuel prices and fare structures. A number of airlines are either in chapter 11 or are expected to file shortly.

Sale
Timing:  The stock has gained a lot recently, but seems to be leveling out.
Reason:  Skywest's stock has performed strongly over the last few months. Over the same period, several large airlines have filed for bankruptcy, and the industry has performed poorly. Fund managers believe that Skywest's stock has reached its peak.
