Violated its 50 DMA line with a damaging volume-driven loss when last noted with caution in the 7/29/14 mid-day report - "Reported earnings +20% on +7% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 versus the year ago period.

Perched near its 52-week high today, holding its ground since a considerable gap up and volume-driven gain on 8/01/14 after a proposed sale to Scientific Games Corporation (SGMS). Quarterly earnings increases through Mar '14 were not a great match with respect to the C criteria. Noted in the 1/24/14 mid-day report with caution - "A downturn in FY '10 and '11 earnings is a flaw concerning the annual earnings history (A criteria) of the fact-based investment system."
