G - Inching further into new high territory with today's gain. Held its ground since reporting earnings -2% on +22% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, below the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria), raising fundamental concerns. Its 50 DMA line defines near-term support where a violation may trigger a technical sell signal.

Slumping toward its 50 DMA line with a loss today undercutting the prior low hit when last noted with caution in the 3/12/14 mid-day report - "Quarterly and annual earnings history (C and A criteria) has been erratic and the lack of sales revenues growth is a concern."

Fundamentals for this Argentine bank are not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines (C and A criteria). Low-priced stocks are discouraged from consideration unless all key criteria are solidly satisfied.

Slumped below its 50 DMA line and suffered volume-driven losses since last noted with caution in the 3/05/14 mid-day report - "Quarterly earnings (C criteria) and sales revenues history are below the guidelines. Current earnings per share should be up +25% or more and in many cases accelerating in recent quarters. Quarterly sales should also be up +18%, +25%, and/or also accelerating over prior quarters. Its annual earnings (A criteria) have improved steadily since an abrupt downturn in FY '09."

Consolidating above its 50 DMA line and perched within close striking distance of its 52-week high.

Most Recent Note for ESTE - 3/28/2014 12:23:30 PM
This thinly traded stock wedged higher with gains lacking volume conviction since it found support near prior highs and its 50 DMA line. 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."

Consolidating above prior highs in the $19 area following an impressive spurt of volume-driven gains. Reported earnings +307% on +68% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, but fundamental concerns remain. Technically it broke out with a considerable "breakaway gap" on 3/18/14, however prior mid-day reports cautioned - "Reported greatly improved earnings in the Mar and Jun '13 quarters but with sub par sales revenues growth. Fundamental concerns remain with respect to the C and A criteria. Erratic sales revenues and earnings history is below the investment system guidelines."

Consolidating -4.8% off its 52-week high today, extended from any sound base after rallying in recent weeks. Prior mid-day reports cautioned members - "Recent quarterly comparisons through Dec '13 showed improved earnings increases, but sub par sales revenues growth and its up and down annual earnings (A criteria) history do not match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines."

Halting its slide today after slumping below its 50 DMA line with 5 consecutive losses with above average volume. The action was indicative of distributional pressure and it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 3/27/14 due to its technical deterioration. A rebound above its 50 DMA line is needed for its outlook to improve.

Rebounding toward its 50 DMA line with today's gain following a damaging streak of 7 consecutive losses on ever-increasing volume. Reported earnings +94% on +18% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter. Last noted in the 2/05/14 mid-day report with caution - "Fundamental concerns remain. Found support above its 50 DMA line when enduring recent volume-driven losses indicative of distributional pressure. Prior mid-day reports repeatedly cautioned - 'Earnings history has been erratic and below guidelines of the fact-based investment system (C and A criteria) leaving fundamental concerns. Based on weak technical action it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list 11/8/07 and subsequently fell from $136 to as low as $14.50 in March '09 before rebounding. Traded up +43% after it was featured in the 8/26/07 Special Report titled 'Stocks That Should Now Be On Your Watch List' with annotated graphs and commentary including our detailed CANSLIM.net Profile, What To Look For And What To Look Out For, and Technical Analysis summaries (read here).'"
