Y - Stalled following its recent technical breakout and it is consolidating above prior highs in the $43-42 area defining initial support to watch. Disciplined investors avoid chasing stocks extended more than +5% above their pivot point, and they always sell if any stock falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

Pulling back today after hitting a new 52-week high following an impressive streak of 10 consecutive gains. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 128 in Dec '12 to 248 in Mar '14, and reported insider buying (I criteria) was noted as an encouraging sign following its upsized Secondary Offering completed on 10/10/13. Showed improved sales and earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) in the 4 latest quarters through Mar '14, but fundamental concerns remain. Due to a downturn in FY '12 earnings, its annual earnings (A criteria) history is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines.

Technically it broke out on 5/16/14 after last noted in the 5/09/14 mid-day report with caution. Hitting a new 52-week high with today's 4th consecutive gain and its 12th gain in the span of 14 sessions. Reported +51% earnings on +41% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, the 4th consecutive quarterly comparison satisfying the C criteria. It is very extended from any sound base after having rallied above previously noted resistance at multi-year highs in the $25-26 area. There is a very small supply of only 1.25 million shares (S criteria) in the float and only 4 top-rated funds (I criteria) own its shares.

Hitting yet another new 52-week high with above average volume behind today's 9th consecutive gain.

Still perched within striking distance of its 52-week high, holding its ground stubbornly following a steak of gains on above average and ever-increasing volume.
