The past 2 quarterly comparisons through Sep '14 showed earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria), but prior quarters showed waning sales and earnings versus the year-ago periods. This Medical - Systems/Equipment firm has not shown a strong and steady annual earnings (A criteria) history, which is a fundamental flaw with respect to the fact-based investment system's guidelines.

Reported earnings +79% on +96% sales revenues for the Jun '14 quarter but fundamental concerns remain. Tallying considerable volume-driven gap up gains this week while hitting new 52-week highs.

Found support at its 200 DMA line during its deep consolidation. Annual earnings history (A criteria) is not a match with the models of past great winners identified using the fact-based investment system."

Hit a new 52-week high today then reversed into the red. Reported earnings +33% on +5% sales revenues for the Jun '14 quarter and fundamental concerns remain.

Challenging its 52-week high with today's 6th consecutive gain, facing very little resistance due to overhead supply. Completed a new Public Offering on 6/27/14.
