Y - This high-ranked Medical - Supplies firm has built an orderly base above its 50 DMA line and above prior highs in the $36 area. Color code is changed to yellow with pivot point cited based on its 9/13/12 high plus 10 cents. Disciplined investors may watch for volume-driven gains above its pivot point which are needed to trigger a new technical buy signal. Last noted in the 7/27/12 mid-day report - "Earnings rose +70% on +21% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 versus the year ago period, marking a 3rd consecutive quarterly earnings increase above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been good following a downturn in FY '08. Patient and disciplined investors may watch for a proper base to form while it continues consolidating."

Gapped down today, retreating from trading near its 52-week high on the prior session. Reported earnings +48% on +10% sales revenues for the quarter ended August 31, 2012 versus the year ago period.

Encountering mild distributional pressure in recent weeks after rallying to new 52-week highs with a streak of 16 consecutive gains. Quarterly comparisons through Jun '12 showed strong earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). A downturn in FY '08 and '09 earnings is a flaw concerning the fact-based investment system's A criteria.

Touched another new 52-week high today.

Encountering mild distributional pressure in recent weeks while consolidating near its 52-week high and stubbornly holding its ground. Due to report earnings on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 after the close. Prior mid-day reports repeatedly noted - "The 3 latest quarterly comparisons through Jun '12 showed improved sales revenues growth and strong earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria), but its annual earnings history has not been strong and steady. Low-priced stocks are discouraged from consideration under the fact-based system unless all key criteria are solidly satisfied."

Trading up again today for another considerable volume-driven gain, rising near its 52-week high. On 10/15/12 it announced plans to sell 4.5 million shares of its common stock and also offer $265 million in convertible senior subordinated notes. Last noted at its 52-week high in the 10/04/12 mid-day report - "Extended from any sound base after its spurt of volume-driven gains helped it rally from a 13 month base. This REIT which invests in sub-prime, non-conforming and other credit-sensitive residential loans had a drastic downturn in annual earnings in prior years and its erratic earnings history raises fundamental concerns. However, it has earned stellar ranks and its recent quarterly comparisons showed huge sales revenues and earnings increases versus the year ago periods."
