Hit a new all-time high today. Technically broke out on 4/14/11 from a base-on-base pattern. No overhead supply exists to act as resistance.The company has a strong annual earnings history (A criteria). The C criteria has not been well satisfied by +25% earnings increases in quarterly comparisons.
Blue triangles beside the quarterly earnings figure in at least the past 8 comparisons indicate pre-tax, non-recurring items were included (where possible, such items are normally removed to provide data better suited for comparison). The restaurant operator survived but failed to impress as it went through several long and very deep corrections since it was dropped from the CANSLIM.net Featured Stocks List on 8/15/2007.

Consolidating above its 50 DMA line since last noted in the 4/06/11 mid-day report - "Its annual earnings results showed a small downturn in '07, which is a minor flaw concerning the A criteria which calls for 3-5 years of steady earnings growth. Quarterly sales revenues and earnings increases are not solidly meeting the guidelines with respect to the C criteria. The stock is somewhat heavily owned (percentage-wise) by funds relative to its management's small 6% reported ownership. Top-rated funds owning an interest decreased from 605 in Mar '09 to 585 in Sep '10, which is not good news concerning the I criteria (NOTE: Prior notes on this and other stocks cited top-rated US funds, and now our source is including foreign funds and hedge funds in their totals reported)."

This Switzerland-based giant in the Chemicals - Agricultural industry group has endured some distributional pressure after reaching new all-time highs in recent weeks.

Waning ownership interest from top-rated funds (I criteria) is another cause for concern. It is not a good match with the fact-based investment system's models of past great winners."
