Y - Enduring distributional pressure after hitting a new 52-week high last week with volume-driven gains. Rose from an advanced "3-weeks tight" base with volume-driven gains triggering a technical buy signal. Recent lows near $42-43 define near-term support and any deterioration below that area would raise concerns.

Y - Rebounded into positive territory quickly today after early weakness tested support near its 50 DMA line. Reported better than expected earnings for the Mar '14 quarter. Highlighted in yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 2/25/14 high plus 10 cents in the 5/27/14 mid-day report (read here). Volume and volatility increase near earnings news. A breakout with volume is needed to trigger a new technical buy signal. Fundamentals remain favorable with respect to the fact-based investment system (C and A criteria). It found support above its 200 DMA line since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 4/07/14. See the latest FSU analysis for more details and annotated graphs.

Today's volume-driven loss has it slumping to new lows since a gap up gain on 4/22/14 following an unsolicited bid from Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). Reported earnings +20% on +13% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter. Prior mid-day reports cautioned members - "Quarterly reports through Dec '13 showed sub par earnings increases. Its annual earnings growth has been steady. Quarterly earnings comparisons have been below the +25% guideline."

Perched at its 52-week high today after a spurt of volume-driven gains. The 5/27/14 mid-day report cautioned members - "The 2 most recent quarters through Mar '14 showed better sales and earnings increases versus the year earlier. 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."

Hitting another new 52-week high with today's 5th consecutive gain. Bullish action has continued since noted when rebounding above its 50 DMA line with a gap up gain on 5/07/14 - "Little resistance remains due to overhead supply. Reported earnings +89% on +246% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter. Recent quarterly comparisons have shown strong earnings increases satisfying the C criteria. Up and down annual earnings (A criteria) track record raises red flags with respect to the fact-based investment system's guidelines."

Perched at its 52-week high today following a gap up and considerable volume-driven gain on the prior session which also topped its all-time high hit in 2011. The 5/27/14 mid-day report cautioned members - "Reported earnings +58% on +20% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter and prior quarterly comparisons showed strong earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Its up and down annual earnings (A criteria) is a fundamental flaw."

Consolidating above its 50 DMA line and perched within striking distance of its 52-week high with today's 5th consecutive gain. Recent quarterly comparisons through Mar '14 show improving sales revenues growth and greatly improved earnings above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Prior mid-day reports cautioned members - "Its up and down annual earnings history (A criteria) is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines."

Low-priced stocks are discouraged from consideration unless all key criteria are solidly satisfied. Trading at its 52-week high today after an impressive spurt of gains backed by above average volume, extended from any sound base. Reported earnings +48% on +31% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, its 3rd consecutive quarterly comparison with earnings above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Annual earnings (A criteria) history has also been strong.

Perched near its 52-week high with very little resistance remaining due to overhead supply. Found support near its 50 DMA line when consolidating in recent months. Reported earnings +57% on +10% sales revenues for the Jan '14 quarter, but fundamental concerns remain. Last noted with caution in the 2/27/14 mid-day report - "Quarterly earnings have not been strong and steady, short of the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) of the fact-based investment system. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has improved after a downturn in FY '09. Sales revenues and earnings history make the fundamentals questionable for this aerospace/defense firm."
