Fundamental and technical deterioration led to it being dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 5/21/12, yet it has since proven resilient and rallied considerably.

Consolidating above prior highs in the $34 area defining initial support to watch on pullbacks. Recently rallied into new high territory with 4 consecutive volume-driven gains. Earnings +36% on +23% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter marked its 5th consecutive quarterly comparison with earnings above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). There is some old overhead supply remaining up through the $45 level, but prior highs from more than a year and three quarters ago are not usually counted as a substantial source of resistance.

The China-based firm is pulling back abruptly today from a new 52-week high hit on the prior session with a considerable volume-driven gain. Recently rallied from support at its 50 DMA line. Reported earnings +25% on +29% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter, but fundamental concerns remain. Showed mostly bullish action since a technical breakout from an orderly base on 9/09/13. Prior mid-day reports repeatedly cautioned members - "Reported earnings +32% on +29% sales for the Jun '13 quarter. The 3 prior quarterly comparisons versus the year ago periods came in below the +25% minimum earnings (C criteria) guideline for buy candidates, contributing to a flaw in its annual earnings (A criteria)."

Gapped down today, pulling back from a new 52-week high hit on the prior session. Held its ground stubbornly above prior highs after 3 consecutive gains backed by above average volume since finding support its 50 DMA line. Prior mid-day reports cautioned members - Reported earnings +22% on +5% sales revenues for the quarter ended Sep 30, 2013 versus the year ago period. Reported earnings +22% on +6% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 versus the year ago period. Prior quarters showed better earnings but with sub par sales revenues growth. Dowturn in FY '09 and '10 earnings is a flaw concerning its annual earnings (A criteria) history."

Considerable "breakaway gap" today after reporting earnings +107% on +14% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter versus the year ago period. Prior quarters Jan, Apr, and Jul '13 showed greatly improved earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria), however its ongoing lack of strong sales revenues growth and poor annual earnings (A criteria) history leave fundamental concerns.

This Israeli manufacturer of Computer - Networking devices has been holding its ground stubbornly near its 52-week high after a volume-driven gain on 11/12/13. Recently reported earnings +49% on +49% sales revenues for the Sep '13, continuing its streak of strong quarterly earnings increases satisfying the C criteria. Concerning the A criteria, there was a downturn in FY '08 and '09, a lingering flaw with respect to the fact-based investment system's fundamental guidelines. Its small supply (S criteria) of only 3.78 million shares in the public float can contribute to greater price volatility.
