G - Considerable gain today after a small gap up. Rising since the considerable breakout gain on 1/27/11 helped it technically break out from a bullish reverse-head-and-shoulders type pattern. Disciplined investors do not chase extended stocks that are up more than +5% above a proper pivot point.

G - Up on higher volume today for a new all-time high. Found prompt support near its 50 DMA line recently after a 1/20/11 gap down completely negated its 1/11/11 technical breakout. Its recent low ($29.52 on 1/20/10) now defines important support to watch where subsequent violations would raise more serious concerns.

Hovering near its 52-week high today with above average volume behind its gain having it poised for a new high close. It has not formed a sound base pattern since last noted in the 1/24/11 mid-day report - "Recently rising from a "V" shaped consolidation since noted in the 12/13/10 mid-day report.

This Israel-based Computer - Tech Services firm's recent quarterly comparisons showed impressive sales and earnings increases and it has a strong annual earnings (A criteria) history."

Rising since a breakaway gap on 1/28/11 following a choppy consolidation. It was last noted on 10/19/10 after it gapped down while enduring distributional pressure, completing a worrisome "island reversal" type pattern. Recent quarters showed much better sales and earnings increases versus the year earlier. Prior quarterly comparisons and annual earnings (A criteria) growth have not been strong and steady, so it is fundamentally below guidelines of the fact-based investment system Noted in prior mid-day reports - "Sales revenues rose +9% and +20% in the Mar and Jun '10 quarters after a streak of negative comparisons, meanwhile it has produced earnings increases well above the +25% guideline in 4 consecutive quarterly comparisons, satisfying the C criteria. Annual earnings (A criteria) have not grown steadily, yet it has earned high ranks."
