Reported earnings +34% on +11% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter. Gapped up today and hit a new 52-week high. Its 50 DMA line recently acted as support. Earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) in 3 of the past 4 quarterly comparisons are encouraging, but decelerating sales revenues growth is a concern. Annual earnings (A criteria) growth has been strong after a big downturn in FY '08 and '09.
