Y - Hit a new 52-week high with today's 6th consecutive gain after finding support near its 50 DMA line and prior chart highs during its 8-week consolidation. The 9/16/11 mid-day report (read here) included it highlighted in yellow with pivot point based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents. A gain with at least +40% above average volume while rising above its pivot point may trigger a technical buy signal. Recently rallied after reporting very strong earnings +122% on +82% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 versus the year ago period. Stellar earnings track record that solidly satisfies the C and A criteria. However, it is already heavily owned by the institutional crowd, and ownership by top-rated funds fell from 4,365 in Mar '11 to 4,347 in Jun '11.

G - Holding its ground today. Last week it reported earnings +53% on +32% sales revenues for the quarter ended July 31, 2011 versus the year ago period, and a considerable "breakaway gap" with heavy volume cleared its pivot point and triggered a technical buy signal. Color code is changed to green. Breakaway gaps are one exception where chasing a stock more than 5% above prior highs may be permitted, but risk increases when doing so that an ordinary pullback may prompt investors to sell per the system's selling rules.

Reported earnings +11% on +10% sales revenues for the quarter ended July 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Since noted in the 6/24/11 mid-day report it surged to a new 52-week high in July, then slumped under its 200 DMA line during a deep consolidation, and it is now rebounding toward its high. Proposed yet another Secondary Offering on 5/31/11. During 2010 it completed a Public Offering and two Secondary Offerings. As noted in prior mid-day reports - "It has shown good sales revenues and earnings increases in recent quarters satisfying the C criteria. Its prior earnings history is below guidelines."

Steadily rallying into new high territory and getting extended from any sound base since noted in the 8/22/11 mid-day report after recently testing support near its 200 DMA line - "Reported +28% earnings on +9% sales revenues for the quarter ended April 30, 2011. Its 4 latest quarterly comparisons (C criteria) showed earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline while sales revenues increases were in the +1-13% range and gradually accelerating. It is heavily owned by mutual funds already, yet top-rated funds owning shares rose from 1,051 in Dec '10 to 1,118 in Jun '11, a somewhat reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. While consumers are fixing their old cars and holding off on new car purchases, AZO and similar players in the auto-repair arena have shown some leadership."

Due to fundamental concerns it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 8/02/11 and subsequently slumped near its 200 DMA line before rebounding. Today's 6th consecutive gain has it rallying within close striking distance of its all-time high. Reported earnings per share +12% on +22% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 versus the year ago period, marking its 2nd consecutive quarterly comparison with earnings below the +25% guideline.

While recently consolidating above its 50 and 200 DMA lines it was repeatedly noted in prior mid-day reports - "Completed an additional Public Offering on 4/07/11.

Pulling back today following 3 consecutive gains that helped it rally within striking distance of its 52-week high. It had slumped under its 200 DMA line again since noted in the 7/21/11 mid-day report - "Sales revenues and earnings have shown increases below the fact-based system guidelines in quarterly comparisons versus the year ago period. Its FY '09 marked the first downturn in its strong annual earnings history (the A criteria). Perched within close striking distance of its 52-week high."

Hitting a new 52-week high today with a 2nd consecutive gain backed by above average volume. It slumped -28% during its 10-week "V" shaped cup with no handle. Recent mid-day reports noted - "Gains last week helped it approach its 52-week high, but it has not formed a sound base pattern. Recent quarterly comparisons have shown strong sales revenues and earnings increases (good C criteria). Losses in FY '07 & '08 are a flaw concerning the investment system's A criteria, and consensus estimates calling for earnings -8% in FY '12 and -9% in FY '13 are additional cause for concern."

Consolidating -4.9% off its 52-week high today. The 3 latest quarterly reports through Jun '11 showed great increases in sales revenues and earnings over the year ago periods, but its prior performance had been erratic. It survived but failed to impress since late 2009 when it was noted - "Completed an additional stock offering on 3/10/09 following an impressive rally from its $2.22 October bottom."

Hovering near its all-time high today with no resistance remaining due to overhead supply. Recent mid-day reports noted - "Several leaders in the recently strong Mining - Gold/Silver/Gems group (L criteria) are perched near all-time highs with no resistance remaining to hinder their progress. Its up and down annual earnings (A criteria) history does not meet the investment system guidelines, but recent quarterly comparisons showed mostly strong sales revenues and earnings increases versus the year ago period."

Recent quarterly comparisons show sales revenues and earnings improvement, but its prior earnings history is below the investment system guidelines.

Reported earnings +233% on +59% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 versus the year ago period. It slumped near its 200 DMA line during a deep consolidation since noted in the 5/27/11 mid-day report - "Recent quarters showed much better sales and earnings increases versus the year earlier. Prior quarterly comparisons and annual earnings (A criteria) growth have not been strong and steady, so it is fundamentally below guidelines of the fact-based investment system. It survived but failed to impress since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 7/26/07."

Adding to its spurt of considerable volume-driven gains with a gain for another new 52-week high today. It is extended from its prior base following an earlier "breakaway gap" on 7/29/11 while prior mid-day reports have repeatedly noted - "Earnings increased by +125% on +26% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Showing impressive sequential acceleration in recent quarterly comparisons, but prior quarterly comparisons showed lackluster sales revenues increases well below the +25% guideline, leaving some fundamental concerns."

Consolidating just above its 50 DMA line today. It found impressive support near its 200 DMA line during its deep pullback from its highs since noted with cautionary remarks in the 7/18/11 mid-day report - "The drastic downturn in FY '09 earnings remains a flaw with respect to the A criteria of the fact-based investment system. Its latest quarterly comparisons showed improving sales and earnings but its prior earnings history is below guidelines of the fact-based investment system. Based on weak technical action it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list 11/8/07 and subsequently fell from $136 to as low as $14.50 in March '09 before rebounding. Traded up +43% after it was featured in the 8/26/07 Special Report titled 'Stocks That Should Now Be On Your Watch List' with annotated graphs and commentary including our detailed CANSLIM.net Profile, What To Look For And What To Look Out For, and Technical Analysis summaries (read here)."
