Y - Pulling back today and testing support at its 50 DMA line again. Deterioration below that important short-term average would raise concerns. Reported better than expected earnings +56% on +54% sales revenues 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. See the latest FSU analysis for more details and annotated graphs.

Found support near its 50 DMA line during its consolidation since last noted following a considerable "breakaway gap" and new 52-week high on 2/26/14 on news of arthritis drug receiving FDA approval. Ownership by top-rated funds rose from 154 in Jun '13 to 253 in Mar '14. Reported very strong sales revenues and earnings increases for the Mar '14 quarter, but prior quarterly comparisons showed sub par sales revenues growth. Also, in the prior 5 quarters there are blue triangles beside the earnings figure on the chart service used by our experts - which indicates pre-tax, non-recurring items were included (where possible, such items are normally removed to provide data better suited for comparison).

Hitting another new 52-week high with above average volume behind today's 7th consecutive gain, adding to an impressive streak of gains.

Prior quarterly and annual earnings (A criteria) history has not been strong and steady, so it falls short of the fact-based investment system's fundamental guidelines.
