Rekening houdend met the verdere achteruitgang van de mediasector [werd gedeeltelijk winst genomen op AA en BB volledig afgebouwd.]

Although the second reply was comprehensive, there is sufficient context in the previous sentence for it to be understood that we are talking about a stock position (admittedly, you weren't to know that!), so I've gone for the pithy option. Thank you anyway.
