Gapped up today for a considerable volume-driven gain and new 52-week high following Jun '14 earnings news. This Medical - Services firm has not shown strong and steady earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Its shares split 3:1 on 12/31/12. Increasing ownership from 314 top-rated funds in Sep '13 to 330 funds in Jun '14 is a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.

Perched near its 52-week high, consolidating since a considerable gap up and volume-driven gain on 8/01/14 after a proposed sale to Scientific Games Corporation (SGMS).

Gapped down today retreating from its 52-week high. There was a considerable "breakaway gap" on 7/31/14. Reported strong earnings increases with sub par sales growth for the Mar and Jun '14 quarters, and fundamental concerns remain. Last noted with caution in the 7/16/13 mid-day report - "Recent quarterly comparisons through Mar '13 showed strong earnings increases satisfying the C criteria.

Making its 2nd consecutive mid-day report appearance with today's 3rd consecutive volume-driven gain challenging its 52-week high. Broader market (M criteria) weakness has recently argued against any new buying efforts. The Chinese Internet - Content firm did not form a sound base pattern, however fundamentals through the Jun '14 quarter just reported remain very strong. Found support near its 200 DMA line and rebounded after a deep consolidation since noted with caution in the 3/19/14 mid-day report. YY was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 1/27/14 amid widespread weakness in China-related companies.
