Reported earnings +41% on +13% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter, marking its 3rd consecutive quarterly comparison with earnings above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria).

Found support at its 50 DMA line after 2 consecutive damaging volume-driven losses.

Reported earnings +27% on +14% sales revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 versus the year ago period, marking its first earnings increase by more than the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) since Mar '12.

Perched at its 52-week high, holding its ground following a 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 391 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.
