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."

Rebounding today after 3 consecutive losses on ever-increasing volume led to a 50 DMA line violation. That important short-term average may now act as resistance.

Hovering at its new 52-week high today. Gapped up for a considerable volume-driven gain on 4/07/14 news of a merger/acquisition agreement whereby Questcor shareholders will receive $30.00 in cash and 0.897 Mallinckrodt Plc shares for each share they own. Found support at its 200 DMA line during its consolidation since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 2/28/14. Disciplined investors avoid chasing extended stocks more than +5% above prior highs and always limit losses by selling any stock that falls more than -7% from their purchase price.
