Today's considerable volume-driven gain helped it hit another new 52-week high, rallying from support at its 50 DMA line which acted as support throughout its ascent since a considerable "breakaway gap" on 10/24/13. Prior mid-day reports repeatedly cautioned members - "The 5 latest quarterly comparisons through Sep '13 showed earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Its up and down annual earnings (A criteria) history is cause for concern. It survived but failed to impress since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 10/07/08."

Hitting new 52-week and all-time highs today. Found support above its 50 DMA line during its consolidation after a "breakaway gap" when last noted with caution on 11/25/13 mid-day report - "Reported earnings +23% on +32% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter, below the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria) following 2 stronger quarterly earnings comparisons, however sales revenues increases have shown encouraging acceleration. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been good. Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.6 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days, however it is already owned by 1,770 top-rated mutual funds."

Found support near its 50 DMA line during consolidations in recent months. Slumped back into the previously noted base after wedging higher with gains lacking great volume conviction. No overhead supply remains to act as resistance while perched within close striking distance of its 52-week high. Due to report Dec '13 quarterly results Thursday, January 30, 2014 before the open. Volume and volatility often increase near earnings news. Reported earnings +26% on +26% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter. Three of the past 4 quarterly comparisons have shown earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). It made an impressive rally since a considerable "breakaway gap" on 7/25/13 with heavy volume. Went through a deep consolidation below its 200 DMA line then rebounded and rallied impressively since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 6/27/12.
