Y - Color code is changed to yellow with pivot point cited based on its 9/07/12 high plus 10 cents. Encountered stubborn resistance in prior months near the $60-61 area and it is perched within close striking distance of its 52-week high today. Disciplined investors may watch for a volume-driven gain above its pivot point to trigger a technical buy signal before taking action. Quarterly earnings increases (C criteria) have been strong and well above the +25% guideline. A downturn in FY '07 and '08 earnings (A criteria) has been followed by a strong earnings rebound in recent years.

Earnings history has been erratic, not a match with the investment system's guidelines."

Hit another new 52-week high today.

Up considerably today with above average volume while rallying for yet another new 52-week high, getting even more extended from any sound base pattern and adding to a parabolic spurt of volume-driven gains in recent weeks.
