This thinly traded stock is still hovering near its 52-week high. Recent mid-day reports repeatedly cautioned members - "Reported strong sales revenues and earnings increases in the 3 latest quarterly comparisons through Dec '13 satisfying the C criteria. Technically, it broke out with a gap up and volume-driven gain on 2/14/14 and followed through with additional confirming gains for new 52-week highs. Faces some resistance at multi-year highs in the $25-26 area. There is a very small supply of only 1.25 million shares (S criteria) in the float and only 3 top-rated funds (I criteria) own its shares."
