Rebounding toward its 52-week high, however it has not formed a sound base pattern. Found support near its 50 DMA line during its choppy consolidation since noted in the 8/23/13 mid-day report with caution - "Reported earnings +142% on +132% sales revenues for the second quarter of 2013. Strong sales and earnings acceleration helped this Chinese provider of investment products to better match the fact-based investment system's fundamental guidelines. Recently rallied from a deep "V" shaped consolidation, not a sound base, and prior highs in the $14 area may now act as support. Patient investors may watch for a new base or secondary buy point to potentially form and be noted in the weeks ahead. Additionally, the major averages (M criteria) must improve before new buying efforts may be justified."

Reported earnings +39% on +9% sales revenues for the Jun '13 quarter but fundamental concerns remain. Hit a new 52-week high on the prior session and it is on track for its 9th weekly gain in the span of 10 weeks. Technically, no resistance remains due to overhead supply. This Chinese Medical/Dental Services firm's earnings history is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines calling for the 3 or 4 most recent quarters to have earnings increases above the +25% guideline (C criteria).
