Y - Slumping near its 50 DMA line, now -6.1% off its 52-week high. A violation of that short-term average would raise concerns and trigger a technical sell signal. Confirming gains above the pivot point with above average volume could trigger a new (or add-on) technical buy signal.

Technically, it broke out on 3/11/14. Reported strong sales revenues and earnings increases for the Sep and Dec '13 quarters but prior quarterly and annual earnings (C and A criteria) history has not been strong and steady."

Reversed into the red after trading above its 50 DMA line earlier.
