Pulling back today from its 52-week high, enduring distributional pressure after 6 consecutive gains including a 4/28/11 gap up gain. It found support near its 2008 high ($33.60) in recent weeks when enduring distributional pressure. Prior mid-day reports noted - "Recent quarters show sales and earnings improving but prior history is below the fact-based system's guidelines. Quarterly and annual earnings results include blue triangles beside the reported earnings figures - the blue triangles are symbols indicating that pre-tax, non-recurring items were included (where possible, such items are normally removed to provide data better suited for comparison)."

Gapped up today for a new 52-week high after reporting earnings +45% on +17% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. It is clear of all resistance due to overhead supply. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been up and down, and prior mid-day reports noted - "Sales revenues and earnings history below guidelines."

Rallying toward its 52-week high from below its 50 DMA line today with its 5th consecutive gain. It has shown strong steady annual earnings growth (good A criteria) however sales revenues have not grown in recent years while quarterly earnings results were mostly below the +25% guideline. It survived but failed to impress since long ago noted in the 7/18/08 mid-day report and earlier reports.

Gapped up today and challenged its all-time high after holding its ground stubbornly above its 50 DMA line in recent weeks. The downward turn in FY '09 earnings raises concerns with respect to the investment system's A criteria. Last noted in the 4/07/11 mid-day report - "Recent quarters show sales and earnings improving but prior history is below the fact-based system's guidelines."

Pulling back following a considerable 5/02/11 gap up gain for a new 52-week high. No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Prior earnings history included a downturn in FY '09, a flaw with respect to the A criteria. Blue triangles beside the earnings figure in the last 8 consecutive quarterly comparisons through Mar '11 indicated pre-tax, non-recurring items were included (where possible, such items are normally removed to provide data better suited for comparison).

Perched at 52-week and multi-year highs today, extended from any sound base pattern. No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Recent quarters showed much better earnings increases with lackluster sales revenues increases versus the year earlier. It found great support near its 50 DMA line while consolidating after the 1/26/11 mid-day report noted - "Its annual earnings (A criteria) growth has not been strong and steady, so it is fundamentally below guidelines of the fact-based investment system."

Hit another new 52-week high today after a considerable 5/03/11 gap up gain with heavy volume for a new high. Recent quarterly comparisons (C criteria) showed mostly impressive sales and earnings increases, including a +38% earnings increase on +34% for the March 2011 period, but results for the quarter ended Dec 31, 2010 were below guidelines. A downturn in its FY '08 earnings was also previously noted as a flaw with respect to the A criteria of the fact-based investment system.

Reported earnings +200% on +32% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Last noted in the 3/10/11 mid-day report - "Recent quarters showed lackluster sales revenues growth while earnings increases versus the year earlier were greatly improved. Prior quarterly comparisons and annual earnings (A criteria) growth have not been strong and steady, so it is fundamentally below guidelines of the fact-based investment system."

Most Recent Note for GMCR - 5/4/2011 12:51:17 PM
Gapped up today for a considerable gain and new all-time high. Reported earnings +129% on +101% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. It is trading +90% above its 200 DMA line and very extended from any sound base pattern, yet could go on to produce more climactic gains. Held its ground following its considerable gap up on 3/10/11 after news of a deal with Starbucks Corp (SBUX). Disciplined investors may watch for secondary buy points or new bases to develop and be noted. Prior mid-day reports have noted - "It has maintained a very strong sales revenues and earnings growth history solidly satisfying the C and A criteria. This previously featured leader was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 10/01/10."

Hovering near its 52-week high, churning above average volume this week indicative of distributional pressure while not making meaningful price progress. The 4/28/11 mid-day report noted - "Downturn in FY '09 earnings (A criteria) earnings makes it fall below the fact-based investment system's fundamental guidelines although recent quarterly comparisons show sales and earnings improving."

Pulling back today, it gapped up for a considerable volume-driven gain on 5/03/11 after reporting earnings +46% on +29% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Steadily climbing to new all-time highs, stubbornly holding its ground after a spurt of volume-driven gains including a breakaway gap on 2/23/11 with heavy volume (5 times average daily). It has rebounded impressively from its Bear Market lows, however its fundamentals are below guidelines. This high-ranked Cosmetics / Personal Care group leader has an up and down annual earnings history (A criteria). In the 6 latest quarters this network marketer of weight management and nutritional supplements showed increases in sales and earnings after 4 negative comparisons.

Pulling back on light volume after a spurt of volume-driven gains last week to new 52-week and all-time highs. Reported earnings +32% on +12% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Strength in the Transportation - Rail group has been a reassuring sign. Its annual earnings history (A criteria) is marred by a terrible downturn in FY '09.
