Y - Fundamentals remain strong (C and A criteria) and it today's 3rd consecutive volume-driven gain is challenging its 52-week high and previously stubborn resistance in the $46-47 area. Highlighted in yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 8/07/14 high in the 10/17/14 mid-day report (read here). Subsequent volume-driven gains above the pivot point may trigger a technical buy signal. See the latest FSU analysis for more details and annotated graphs.

Found support above its 200 DMA line after damaging volume-driven losses. Reported earnings +18% on +17% sales revenues for the Jun '14 quarter.

It undercut its 200 DMA line during its consolidation then rebounded since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 1/30/14."

Ran into resistance at its 50 DMA line recently and endured distributional pressure last week. Made limited headway since a considerable "breakaway gap" for a new 52-week high when noted in the 7/22/14 mid-day report with caution - "Reported earnings +23% on +29% sales revenues for the Jun '14 quarter. Fundamental concerns remain, as quarterly earnings were below the +25% minimum in 3 of the past 4 prior quarterly comparisons, not satisfying the C criteria. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been very strong and steady."
