Y - Stubbornly holding its ground in a tight range, churning higher volume while perched within close striking distance of its prior high. Due to report earnings news after market close on Thursday, January 17, 2019. Volume and volatility often increase near earnings news. Color code was changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 10/01/18 high plus 10 cents. Subsequent gains above the pivot point backed by at least +40% above average volume may trigger a technical buy signal. Its 50 DMA line ($82.60) and prior low define near-term support to watch on pullbacks.

Thinly traded Biomed/Biotech firm is hitting a new 52-week high with today's 3rd consecutive gain on ever-increasing volume. Earnings increases have been above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) in the 4 latest quarterly comparisons through Sep '18. Sales revenues growth showed acceleration, but quarterly totals have been in the $7-8 million range, still rather minuscule in the context of all publicly traded companies.

Rebounded above its 50 DMA line, but it still faces resistance due to overhead supply up to the $467 level. Reported Sep '18 quarterly earnings +49% on +17% sales revenues versus the year ago period, marking its 4th consecutive quarterly comparison above the investment system's +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria). Annual earnings (A criteria) history has been strong and steady.

Rallying above recent highs today, yet it faces some resistance due to overhead supply up to the $23 level. Quarterly earnings increases through Sep '18 have not been strong and steady above the +25% guideline (C criteria). Annual earnings (A criteria) history has been up and down. Fundamental concerns remain since noted with caution in the 1/06/12 mid-day report.

Rebounded above its 200 DMA line with above average volume behind a recent spurt of gains. Faces some resistance up to the $38 level due to overhead supply.

Reported earnings +69% on +17% sales revenues for the Sep '18 quarter, but fundamental concerns remain. Overhead supply remains and may hinder its progress up to the $58 level. Noted with caution in the 2/28/18 mid-day report - "Erratic annual earnings (A criteria) history makes it a questionable candidate, fundamentally."
