Recent lows near the $55 area define important chart support to watch.

Building a base above the previously noted 6-month cup shaped base. Reported earnings +211% on +32% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 versus the year ago period. It had reported earnings -13% on -4% sales revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 versus the year ago period, creating a flaw concerning the C criteria. Consensus estimates call for earnings -1% in FY '12, yet its annual earnings (A criteria) growth has been improving nicely since a loss in FY '07.

Today's 4th consecutive small loss has it slumping below its 50 DMA line, yet still trading within -7% of its 52-week high. Reported earnings +21% on +15% sales revenues for the Mar '12 quarter, continuing to show signs of earnings growth rate deceleration. Last noted in the 2/01/12 mid-day report - "No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Earnings have been strong in quarterly comparisons through Dec '11 but sales revenues growth has shown sequential deceleration. Slumped way below its 200 DMA line during its deep consolidation since noted in the 7/26/11 mid-day report - 'The 3 most recent quarterly earnings increases were above the +25% guideline, but prior comparisons versus the year ago periods were negative. Based on weak technical action it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 9/04/08, then subsequently slumped from $44 to $24 before rebounding. Downturn in FY '09 earnings (A criteria) makes it fall below guidelines.'"

Churning heavy volume this week without making meaningful price progress, a sign it is enduring distributional pressure amid widespread market (M criteria) weakness. It has not formed a sound base, yet it found support at its 50 DMA line and extended its rally from prior highs in the $120 area since noted in the 4/19/12 mid-day report - "Quarterly sales revenues and earnings growth has been in line with the investment system's guidelines concerning the C criteria. Annual earnings growth has been strong following a dip in its FY '09 earnings."

Still perched at its 52-week high today, holding its ground stubbornly following a recent spurt of volume-driven gains. Last week's rally included a gap up on 5/09/12 after reporting earnings +121% on +5% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 versus the year ago period.

Pulling back today with above average volume, retreating below its 50 DMA line yet still trading within just -6% of its 52-week and all-time highs. The 5/03/12 mid-day report noted - "Reported earnings +16% on +12% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31 2012 versus the year ago period, marking its 2nd consecutive quarterly comparison with earnings increasing below the +25% minimum guideline. A downward turn in its FY '09 earnings is a concern with respect to the A criteria of the fact-based system's guidelines. It survived and rebounded in recent years after deteriorating badly after it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 10/02/08."

After pricing an offering of new Senior Notes it is retreating near its 50 DMA line with today's loss on higher volume, yet still trading just -7% off its 52-week and all-time highs. Prior mid-day reports noted - "Reported earnings +35% on +11% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 versus the year ago period. No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Its quarterly and annual earnings history is now a better match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines for the C and A criteria although sales revenues increases in the +11-13% range are sub par. It is slightly extended from a recent flat base formed above its 50 DMA line. Completed a Secondary Offering of 18 million shares priced at $16.75 on 10/12/11."

Encountered stubborn resistance in the $28 area while building a base in recent months. The Dec '11 and Mar '12 quarterly comparisons showed improved sales revenues and earnings increases, but its prior quarterly and annual earnings (A criteria) history has been below the fact-based investment system's guidelines.

Pulling back after reaching a new 52-week high last week. No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Recent quarterly comparisons through Mar '12 showed strong sales revenues and earnings (C criteria) increases. A downturn in FY '09 is a flaw concerning its annual earnings (A criteria) history, yet it has followed that up with strong increases in FY '10 and '11.

Its earnings were above the +25% minimum guideline in the Dec '11 and Mar '12 quarterly comparisons. Prior quarterly and annual earnings (A criteria) history is not a match with the fact-based investment system's fundamental guidelines. It survived but failed to impress since 3/05/07 when it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list.
