Purchase
Timing:  The stock recently hit a six month low, but has rebounded in the last week.
Reason:  There is still tremendous demand for data storage devices. The popularity of new flash drives has caused the price of Seagate to fall on the expectation that hard disk drives will decrease in popularity. However, Seagate's drives are still included in many products.

Sale
Timing:  
Reason:  The price of Seagate has risen significantly. The company has announced new technology that allows it to build higher capacity drives. There is some discussion that the market for computers is softening, which would adversely affect future sales of Seagate.
