Consolidating -8.4% off its 52-week high. Reported +56% earnings on +14% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter and gave encouraging FY '14 guidance recently, but fundamental concerns remain. Found support above prior highs in the $123 area while consolidating since noted with caution in the 1/15/14 mid-day report - "Lack of sales revenues growth is a concern. Quarterly and annual earnings history (C and A criteria) are not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines."

Hitting a new 52-week high with today's considerable volume-driven gain, rallying with no resistance due to overhead supply. Reported earnings +70% on +16% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, its 6th consecutive quarter with earnings above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Its annual earnings (A criteria) history included a downturn in FY '10, a flaw with respect to the fact-based investment system's guidelines.

Perched at its 52-week high with today's 5th consecutive gain. No resistance remains due to overhead supply. The China-based firm reported earnings +88% on +76% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, its 3rd quarterly comparison with earnings at or above the +25% minimum earnings (C criteria) guideline for buy candidates. Flaws in its annual earnings (A criteria) history previously were noted as a fundamental concern.

Most Recent Note for JNPR - 2/21/2014 12:29:53 PM
Hovering near its 52-week high, stubbornly holding its ground following a "breakaway gap" on 1/10/14. Reported earnings +54% on +12% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, its 4th consecutive earnings increase above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Prior quarterly sales revenues increases were in the +3-7% range, not indicating truly great demand for any new products or services (N criteria). Its large supply of 505 Million shares (S criteria) outstanding makes it an unlikely sprinter. Up and down annual earnings history is a flaw (A criteria).

Reported earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline in past 5 quarterly comparisons through Dec '13, but fundamental concerns remain. Annual earnings history has not been strong and steady, falling short of the guidelines for the A criteria. Powering to a new 52-week high with today's considerable volume-driven gain.

Perched at its all-time high today tallying another volume-driven gain, on track for its 5th consecutive weekly gain. Reported earnings +14% on +8% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, a 2nd consecutive quarterly comparison with earnings below the +25% guideline (C criteria). It has earned high ranks after demonstrating strong steady annual earnings (A criteria) growth. This Denmark-based Medical - Ethical Drug firm has seen the number of top-rated funds owning its shares fall from 232 in Mar '13 to 200 in Dec '13, not a good sign concerning the I criteria.

Hitting another new 52-week high today. Did not form a base of sufficient length yet stubbornly held its ground after considerable volume-driven gains. Prior mid-day reports repeatedly noted - "No resistance remains due to overhead supply as it gapped up today for a considerable volume-driven gain and new all-time highs. Reported strong Dec '13 earnings and encouraging guidance for FY '14. Found support near its 50 DMA line during consolidations in recent months. Since a downturn in the Mar '13 quarter its recent quarterly comparisons have shown earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) and it has a strong annual earnings (A criteria) history. Patient investors may watch for a new base or secondary buy point to develop and be noted in the weeks ahead."

Hitting new 52-week highs with an impressive streak of 8 consecutive gains marked by ever-increasing volume including a big "breakaway gap" on the prior session.
