Consolidating above its 50 DMA line, enduring recent distributional pressure. Hit new highs with recent gains lacking great volume. Noted in prior mid-day reports with caution - "No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Reported earnings +32% on +15% sales revenues for Sep '13 quarter but its prior quarterly and annual earnings (C and A criteria) history is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines.

Slumping below its 50 DMA line today with a 3rd damaging volume-driven loss in the span of 4 sessions. The 50 DMA line acted as support on prior pullbacks. Reported earnings +20% on +11% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter. Prior mid-day reports repeatedly cautioned members - "Prior quarterly comparisons showed sub par sales and earnings results and its annual earnings (A criteria) history is not a match with the winning models of the fact-based system. It survived but failed to impress since it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 6/12/2008. Traded up as much as +21.5% after first featured at $50.74 in the 3/18/08 Mid-Day BreakOuts Report (read here)."
