Hitting a new 52-week high today with a 3rd consecutive gain. Recent quarterly comparisons showed improving sales revenues and earnings increases, but the Jun '12 quarter was the first earnings increase above the +25% guideline after 3 sub par quarters. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history included a downturn in FY '08, considered a flaw in its fundamentals under the fact-based investment system.

Considerable gain today for a new 52-week high, its 5th consecutive gain. Went through a deep consolidation below its 50 DMA line then rebounded since noted in the 5/11/12 mid-day report - "Earnings and sales growth has not been strong and steady in past quarterly comparisons, and its up and down annual earnings history (A criteria) is below the investment system's guidelines."

It has maintained a good annual earnings history (A criteria) and quarterly earnings increases were above the +25% minimum guideline in the 2 latest comparisons through Apr '12 while other comparisons were borderline or below the guideline. It rebounded from its 200 DMA to multi-year resistance in the $24-25 area and recently wedged into new high territory without great volume conviction behind its gains. It survived but failed to impress since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 7/02/10.

Gapped down today, abruptly reversing from new 52-week and all-time highs after recently wedging to new high territory without great volume conviction behind a streak of consecutive small gains. Prior mid-day reports noted - "Fundamental (earnings growth) concerns still apply through its Mar '12 quarterly results after the Retail - Drug Store firm reported earnings +14% on +20% sales revenues versus the year ago period. It survived but failed to impress since long ago noted in the 5/06/08 mid-day report - 'Earnings growth below guidelines.'"

Gapped up today hitting a new 52-week high, rebounding from a pullback below its 50 DMA line. Stayed above prior highs in the $38 area while consolidating following a considerable gap up and volume-driven gain on 4/19/12 for new 52-week and multi-year highs. The 4/23/12 mid-day report noted - "No resistance remains due to overhead supply, however sub par fundamentals remain a concern. Earnings increases have been below the fact-based system's +25% minimum guideline in the past 8 quarterly comparisons versus the year ago period through Mar '12. Still growing since FY '09 marked the first downturn in its strong annual earnings history (the A criteria)."

Touched a new 52-week high today. Its total shares outstanding of 484.8 million makes it an unlikely sprinter. It has a great annual earnings history (A criteria) and no overhead supply to act as resistance. Quarterly earnings and sales revenues comparisons have not shown strong and steady +25% or greater increases versus the year ago periods, leaving fundamental concerns.

Huge gap up gain for a new high today came after reporting earnings +267% on +111% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 versus the year ago period. It found prompt support on the prior session after a violation of its 50 DMA line had triggered a technical sell signal. It did not form a sound new base pattern, and weak action had prompted it to be dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 7/17/12.

Rebounded from a slump below its 50 DMA line since noted in the 4/20/12 mid-day report - "Reported earnings +42% on +18% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 versus the year ago period, improving from sub par earnings increases in the 2 prior quarterly comparisons (Sep and Dec '11).

Challenging its 52-week high today with a considerable volume-driven gain after gapping up from support at its 200 DMA line.

Trading under its 50 DMA line today after enduring distributional pressure. During a recent consolidation it found support above its 50 DMA line.

Pulling back today following a considerable volume-driven gain for a new 52-week high on the prior session, rebounding from below its 50 DMA line with a streak of 4 consecutive gains. Prior mid-day reports noted - "Quarterly earnings increases above the +25% guideline in the 3 most recent comparisons satisfy the C criteria. A downward turn in its FY '09 earnings is an obvious flaw with respect to the investment system's A criteria. It is an interesting turn around story with a small supply of only 20.6 million shares (S criteria) outstanding. Longtime members may recall that SSYS was long ago (2003) featured in our monthly newsletter and special reports."

That marks 3 consecutive quarters satisfying the C criteria. Its slight downturn in earnings in FY '10 is a minor flaw concerning the A criteria.

Rallying near its 52-week high today, rebounding from a slump below its 50 DMA line. Reported earnings +14% on +10% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. It has been consolidating in an orderly fashion, building a new flat base pattern. It was noted in the 4/20/12 mid-day report after breaking out of a sound base pattern and clearing prior highs in the $30 area with a volume-driven gain - "Faces limited resistance due to overhead supply while now challenging its 52-week high. Quarterly comparisons through Mar '12 show sales revenues and earnings increases decelerating, and its prior history included a drastic downturn in FY '09 which is a flaw concerning the A criteria of the fact-based system."

Survived but failed to impress since noted in the 8/08/11 mid-day report - "Gapped down today, pulling back from its 52-week high hit last week. Annual earnings (A criteria) history has been good. The 2 latest quarterly comparisons versus the year ago period showed sales revenues increases in the +14-17% range with earnings per share increases in the +25-44% range. Ownership by top-rated funds fell from 124 in Dec '10 to 116 in Jun '11, whereas increasing institutional interest (I criteria) is clearly desired."
