Timing:  The company has moved down from its high at the end of December.
Reason:  Nanotechnology has recently been incorporated into products and has strong potential. Rather than taking a bet on a single firm in this new arena, the fund chose to invest in a VC firm that holds a portfolio of "tiny" technology firms.

Reason:  Harris & Harris has not had positive performance during the time we have held the stock. In addition, because the companies they hold are not publicly traded, it is not easy for us to value those companies. We concluded we could learn more by investing in a company that is more transparent.
