Gapped up today and touched a new 52-week high then abruptly reversed into the red, pulling back near its 50 DMA line. Reported earnings -20% on +25% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter. Last noted in the 3/12/14 mid-day report with caution - "Its annual earnings (the A criteria) history showed a downturn in 2012, leaving fundamental concerns. After a streak of negative quarterly sales revenues and earnings comparisons it showed great improvements in the Mar, Jun, Sep, and Dec '13 quarters. Its small supply of 30.1 million shares (the S criteria) outstanding could contribute to especially great volatility in the event of institutional accumulation or distribution. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 312 in Mar '13 to 391 in Dec '13, which is good news concerning the I criteria. Survived but failed to impress since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 7/31/09."

Tallying a 2nd consecutive big gain on heavy volume. Technically, it broke out from a sound base on the prior session. Showed strong earnings increases in the Dec '13 and Mar '14 quarters but its prior quarterly and annual earnings (C and A criteria) history is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines.
