Pulling back from its 52-week high hit last week after a streak of volume-driven gains helped it technically break out of a long flat base pattern. The 5/16/11 mid-day report noted - "Recent quarterly comparisons showed strong earnings, however sub par sales revenues growth has been a concern while increases have been in the +7-11% range. Autozone Inc (AZO) and similar players (MNRO & ORLY) in the auto-repair arena have been noted in recent months while consumers have been fixing their old cars instead of buying new cars they cannot afford."

Inching higher today for an 8th consecutive gain and another new 52-week high. Volume-driven gains in the past 2 weeks helped it gradually rise from an orderly base pattern since the 5/05/11 mid-day report noted - "Group RS rating currently is D, not reassuring concerning the L criteria. Earnings increase of +46% for the Mar '11 quarter was the first comparison in more than 2 years with a better than +25% increase."

Most Recent Note for ASPS - 5/17/2011 11:49:53 AM
In recent months it built an orderly base-on-base type pattern and technically broke out with a considerable gain on 4/20/11. Subsequent volume driven gains helped its Relative Strength Rank improve while getting extended from prior highs. Disciplined investors may watch for secondary buy points or a sound new base to possibly be formed and noted. This Luxembourg-based Financial Services firm's small supply (S criteria) of only 16.8 million shares in the public float can contribute to greater volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling. After it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 10/07/10 it then violated its 200 DMA with a streak of volume-driven losses before rebounding back above its 200 DMA and 50 DMA lines.
