Hitting yet another new all-time high while on track today for an 8th consecutive volume-driven gain. Found support at its 50 DMA line on its pullback after it technically broke out of a previously noted orderly base pattern. Noted in prior mid-day reports - " Quarterly earnings increases have been mostly strong and backed by solid sales revenues increases, but the -16% earnings in its Jun '11 quarter is a flaw concerning the C criteria. This Luxembourg-based Financial Services firm's small supply (S criteria) of only 16.2 million shares in the public float can contribute to greater volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling. ASPS was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 10/07/10 then violated its 200 DMA with a streak of volume-driven losses, and it subsequently rebounded back above its 200 DMA and 50 DMA lines."

Reported earnings +9% on +6% sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 versus the year ago period, below the +25% minimum earnings guideline for buy candidates. A 3rd consecutive gain today helped it touch a new 52-week high, rising above prior resistance in the $17-18 area. Recently found support above its 50 DMA line, and prior mid-day reports noted - "Quarterly sales revenues and earnings increases in the 5 latest comparisons through Sep 30, 2011 were well above the +25% guideline satisfying the C criteria. The downturn in FY '09 earnings is a fundamental flaw concerning the A criteria. With respect to the I criteria, the number of top rated funds owning its shares rose from 799 in Jun '11 to 913 in Dec '11. It survived but failed to impress since 4/23/2008 when it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list and subsequently fell from $13 to $3 over the next 6 months. First it had traded up as much as +25.4% after it was first featured at $15.89 in the February 2008 CANSLIM.net News (read here)."

Earnings and sales growth has remained sub par since noted in the 7/07/11 mid-day report - "Sales and earnings history is below the fact-based investment system guidelines.

Recently wedging to new 52-week and all-time highs with gains lacking great volume conviction since its big gap up gain on 2/03/12. Quarterly and annual earnings history has been strong and satisfies the C & A criteria, however the 3 recent quarters' earnings increases, sequentially, decelerated to the minimum +25% level in the Dec '11 comparison. Rebounded from a deep consolidation below its 200 DMA line since noted 8/05/11 - "Based on weak action it will be dropped from the Featured Stocks list tonight."

The 1/25/12 mid-day report noted - "Challenging its Dec '11 high and approaching its 52-week high with above average volume behind today's 3rd consecutive gain. The latest quarterly comparisons showed great sales and earnings increases satisfying the C criteria. A downturn in its FY '09 earnings is a flaw concerning the A criteria."

Hitting new 52-week and all-time highs today with a 5th consecutive gain. Last noted in the 2/07/12 mid-day report - "Encountering distributional pressure this week. It went through a deep consolidation after dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 9/05/08. It has rebounded impressively, especially since its Nov '10 breakout, and it may be an interesting turnaround story now, however the downturn in FY '09 and FY '10 earnings is a flaw with respect to the A criteria of the fact-based investment system. Its small supply of shares outstanding (the S criteria) can contribute to greater volatility, especially if institutional investors rush in or out."

Pulling back today following a considerable gap up gain for a new 52-week high noted on the prior session, blasting out of a "double bottom" base well above a prior base pattern which may be considered a riskier late-stage base. Reported earnings +40% on +24% sales revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Concerns were noted in the 12/21/11 mid-day report - "On 11/18/11 it priced the previously announced new Public Offering of 3.3 million shares at $16.25. Held its ground and made recent progress above prior highs after the previously noted 10/21/11 gap up from a cup-with-handle type base. Earnings improved by more than +25% in recent quarterly comparisons (Mar, Jun, Sep '11) satisfying the C criteria, but its annual (A criteria) earnings history included a downturn in FY '10, a flaw with respect to the fact-based investment system's guidelines."

Spiking to another new 52-week high today with a 5th consecutive gain. A volume-driven gain on 2/01/12 helped it break out from the orderly base-on-base type pattern after last noted in the 1/12/12 mid-day report. Recently rallied above its 2008 high ($71.16) to reach new all-time high territory. Annual earnings (A criteria) history has been steady but estimates are calling for -34% earnings for FY '12. Quarterly comparisons show 2 of the past 4 earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline through Dec '11 but sub par sales revenues growth is a concern.
