Most Recent Note for JNPR - 1/24/2014 12:28:19 PM
Gapped up today hitting another new 52-week high. Stubbornly held its ground following a "breakaway gap" on 1/10/14. Reported earnings +54% on +12% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, its 4th consecutive earnings increase above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Prior quarterly sales revenues increases were in the +3-7% range, not indicating truly great demand for any new products or services (N criteria). Its large supply of 505 Million shares (S criteria) outstanding makes it an unlikely sprinter, and its downturn in FY '09 earnings is a flaw in the A criteria.

Powering to a new 52-week high with today's gap up and considerable volume-driven gain. Found support near its 50 DMA line during its recent consolidation. Its annual earnings (the A criteria) history showed a downturn in 2012, leaving fundamental concerns. After a streak of negative quarterly sales revenues and earnings comparisons it showed great improvements in the Mar, Jun, Sep, and Dec '13 quarters. Its small supply of 30.1 million shares (the S criteria) outstanding could contribute to especially great volatility in the event of institutional accumulation or distribution. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 312 in Mar '13 to 392 in Dec '13, which is good news concerning the I criteria. Survived but failed to impress since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 7/31/09.
