Y - Fundamentals remain strong (C and A criteria) and it gapped up today challenging its 52-week high and previously stubborn resistance in the $46-47 area. Color code is changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 8/07/14 high. Subsequent volume-driven gains above the pivot point may trigger a technical buy signal. A follow-through day from the major averages is also needed to confirm a new market rally (M criteria) before any new buying efforts may be considered under the fact-based investment system. Found support at its 200 DMA line then rebounded since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 9/15/14.

Found support at its 200 DMA line this week. The 3 most recent quarters through Jun '14 showed much better sales and earnings increases versus the year earlier. Annual earnings (A criteria) history has not been strong and steady, so it is fundamentally below guidelines of the fact-based investment system.

Rebounding toward its 50 DMA line with today's 3rd consecutive volume-driven gain following 4 consecutive volume-driven losses. Faces resistance due to overhead supply up through the $231 level. There was a "negative reversal" at its 52-week high when noted with caution in the 9/19/14 mid-day report - "Reported earnings +36% on +57% sales revenues for the Jun '14 quarter, its 2nd consecutive quarterly comparison with earnings above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria), but fundamental concerns remain. History includes a great annual earnings (A criteria) track record. Dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 8/06/11, it subsequently went through a deep consolidation below its 200 DMA line before rebounding."
