Y - Considerable gain today with higher volume, rallying from its 50 DMA line to within close striking distance of its 52-week high. Recent lows in the $96 area define near-term support to watch where violations would raise concerns and trigger technical sell signals.

Above average volume was behind losses while retreating from its 52-week high and testing its 50 DMA line. Prior mid-day reports noted - "Showed much better sales revenues and earnings increases in the Jan, Apr, and Jul '12 quarters, but the Building -Heavy Construction firm is not a match with the fact-based investment system's guidelines."

Consolidating in a tight range near its 52-week high for the past 5 weeks after a spurt of volume-driven gains helped it rally from a long and orderly flat base. Low-priced stocks are discouraged from consideration under the fact-based system unless all key criteria are solidly satisfied. Prior mid-day reports noted - "This low-priced stock does not meet the fact-based investment system's guidelines. Its earnings history has not been strong and steady."

Hit another new 52-week high today then reversed into the red, and it is extended from any sound base. Underlying fundamentals (annual earnings history, A criteria) remain a concern. Stubbornly held its ground following a recent spurt of volume-driven gains. Found support near its 50 DMA line while consolidating since July when it was noted in 2 mid-day reports - "It survived but failed to impress since noted in the 8/26/09 mid-day report -'Recent quarters showed big earnings improvements over the year ago period. However, sales revenues increases have been erratic, below guidelines, and rather minuscule (at $5-7 million or so per quarter).'"

Pulling back from its 52-week high with today's 5th consecutive loss, slumping near its 50 DMA line. It rallied through overhead supply up through the $53 level since last noted in the 8/30/12 mid-day report - "Sales revenues and earnings history are below are fact-based investment system's guidelines. To satisfy the C criteria, current earnings per share should be up +25% or more and in the most ideal cases accelerating impressively in the most recent 3-4 quarterly comparisons."
