G - Color code is changed to green. Reported earnings +0% on +34% sales revenues for the Jun '14 quarter, below the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria), yet the company raised its guidance. Holding its ground at its 52-week high today following a considerable "breakaway gap" on the prior session with more than 4 times average volume. A breakaway gap is the one noted exception where investors may chase a stock more than +5% above prior highs, however risk increases.

Rebounded above its 50 DMA line with a volume-driven gain on the prior session and it is approaching its 52-week high with today's 3rd consecutive gain.

Found support at its 200 DMA line then rebounded since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 7/08/14 due to technical deterioration.

Slumping below its 50 DMA line with above average volume behind recent losses. Little overhead supply remains to act as resistance, however it has not formed a proper base.
