Y - Fundamentals remain strong concerning the C and A criteria. Color code is changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 4/01/13 high plus 10 cents. Subsequent volume-driven gains above the new pivot point may trigger a new technical buy signal. It may spend more time basing while it faces resistance due to overhead supply up through the $16 level. Found encouraging support at its 50 DMA line and flashed above average volume behind recent gains while building on a new base since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 4/18/13.

Challenging previously stubborn resistance in the $30 area and making its 2nd consecutive appearance in the mid-day report trying to rally from a "double bottom" base. The 5/03/13 mid-day report cautioned - "Earnings increases improved in the Dec '12 and Mar '13 quarters but sub par sales revenues growth is a concern. Earnings history is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines (C and A criteria)."

Hitting yet another new 52-week high today while tallying an 8th consecutive volume-driven gain. Rallied above earlier chart highs from an orderly flat base, and it has been working its way though resistance due to overhead supply. Prior mid-day reports repeatedly cautioned - "Its quarterly and annual earnings (C and A criteria) history is not a match with the fact-based system's fundamental guidelines. Low-priced stocks are discouraged from consideration unless all key criteria are solidly satisfied."

Hitting another new 52-week high today while adding to its impressive spurt of volume-driven gains. Noted in prior mid-day reports repeatedly with caution - No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Due to release the first quarter financial results after the market closes on Monday, May 6, 2013.

Gapped down today retreating from its new 52-week high hit on the prior session with a gap up gain. Reported earnings +33% on +4% sales for the Mar '13 quarter. Found recent support while consolidating above its 50 DMA line.

Holding its ground following a 5/02/13 gap up gain, hovering within close striking distance of its 52-week high. Reported earnings +26% on +36% sales for the Mar '13 quarter. It sputtered below its 50 DMA line during its consolidation from its high since noted in the 2/11/13 mid-day report with caution. The 2 prior quarterly comparisons were well below the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria) of the fact-based system. Consensus estimates calling for FY '13 earnings growth of +6% and FY '14 at 0%, and its currently low P/E valuation (0.7 X SP) both suggest a timid outlook for future growth, which is cause for concern.

Most Recent Note for HCI - 5/6/2013 12:48:19 PM
Holding its ground today at its 52-week high after a considerable "breakaway gap" and volume-driven gain on the prior session. Reported earnings +106% on +48% sales revenues for the Mar '13 quarter, ending the previously noted streak of decelerating sales revenues increases. Sequentially, prior comparisons showed decelerating sales revenues increases from +131%, +99%, +60%, to +40% in the Mar, Jun, Sep, and Dec '12 quarters, respectively. Earnings history is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines (C and A criteria) considering flat earnings results for the Sep '12 quarter, and the downturn in FY '09 and '10.

Making its 3rd consecutive mid-day report appearance, holding its ground following a considerable 5/03/13 gap up gain. Spiked to new 52-week highs with above average volume behind 5 consecutive gains. Found support at its 50 DMA line on the latest pullback after forming an orderly base pattern. Reported earnings +67% on +7% sales revenues for the Mar '13 quarter. Its 50 DMA line acted as support after technically clearing a 9 month base when noted in the 1/09/13 mid-day report with caution - "Recent quarters through Sep '12 showed better earnings increases but with sub par sales revenues growth. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has not been strong and steady. Low-priced stocks are discouraged from consideration under the fact-based system unless all key criteria are solidly satisfied."
