Y - It formed an advanced "3-weeks tight" base pattern and its color code is changed to yellow with a new pivot point cited based on its 2/13/12 high plus 10 cents. A volume-driven gain for a strong close above it pivot point may confirm a new (or-add on) technical buy signal. Prior highs near $102 define the initial support level to watch above its 50 DMA line.

Up again today, on track for a 5th consecutive gain and another new all-time high. This well-known tech leader is extended from any sound base pattern after a considerable rally since the previously noted "breakaway gap" on 1/25/12 from an advanced "3-weeks tight" base pattern.

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. Touched a new 52-week high today then reversed into the red. Struggling near 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)."

Reported earnings +53% on +21% sales revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 versus the year ago period. No resistance remains due to overhead supply. From its prior high it went through a deep consolidation below its 200 DMA line since noted in the 8/02/11 mid-day report - "Recent quarterly earnings increases above the +25% guideline satisfy the C criteria, but its up and down annual earnings (A criteria) history is a concern. Based on weak action it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 10/03/08 and fundamentals deteriorated afterward while it slumped from above $21 to as low as $8.57 before rebounding."

Down today with above average volume following an analyst downgrade. Reported earnings +93% on +32% sales revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Recent quarterly comparisons showed improved sales revenues and earnings increases satisfying the C criteria. Fundamentals do not meet guidelines of the fact-based investment system, especially after it tallied 50 cents per share loss in FY '09. It was noted 10/30/07 -"Questionable annual earnings history (not a strong A)."

Slumping near the session low and erasing much of its early gain after gapping up today for another new 52-week high. Quarterly earnings increases above the +25% guideline in the 7 latest quarterly comparisons through Dec '11 satisfy the C criteria. Insider buying was reported in Nov, Dec, and Jan as it rose toward prior resistance in the $14 area and found support near its 50 DMA line. Prior mid-day reports noted - "Recent quarterly comparisons show improving sales revenues and earnings increases but its annual earnings (A criteria) history falls below the investment system's guidelines."

Holding its ground today after spiking to a new 52-week high with a considerable volume-driven gain on the prior session. Prior mid-day reports noted - "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."

Reversed into the red after hitting yet another new 52-week high today. Reported earnings +179% on +49% sales revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 versus the year ago period. Recent gains cleared the old high that it hit when noted in the 8/31/11 mid-day report - "Reported earnings +78% on +19% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 versus the year ago period and recent quarters were strong, but its up and down annual earnings (questionable A) history remains a fundamental concern. There is a small supply of only 4.26 million shares in its float, which can contribute to greater price volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling."

Considerable gap up gain today with heavy volume for a new 52-week high. It is rallying for a 6th consecutive gain with no resistance due to overhead supply, but it is extended from any sound base. Found support above its 50 DMA line during the recent consolidation. Reported earnings +28% on +20% sales revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Prior comparisons were at or just under the +25% minimum earnings guideline while it showed slight sales and earnings acceleration, and its annual earnings (A criteria) history is good. Patient investors may watch for secondary buy points to possibly develop and be noted, rather than chasing it while too extended from a proper base pattern.
