Hitting a new 52-week high with today's volume-driven gain. Reported strong sales revenues and earnings increases in the Sep and Dec '13 quarterly comparisons, but fundamental concerns remain as prior quarterly earnings were sub par (C criteria). It went through a deep consolidation then rebounded since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 5/04/12. Damaging technical action had negated its breakout with a gap down on 5/02/12 as it violated its recent lows and undercut its 50 DMA line triggering sell signals with its largest point loss on the highest volume ever.
