  • Affymetrix (AFFX) Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Mar 12, 2013 3:59 PM | about stocks: AFFX

    The Chart of the Day is Affymetrix (AFFX). I found the stock by sorting the Barchart New High list of stocks trading over 100K shares a day and then sorted for frequency. Next flip through the charts using the flipchart tab. The stock hit 15 new highs and is up 22.73% in just the past month. The Trend Spotter also triggered a buy signal on 1/8 and the stock is up 27.50% from that point.

    The Company's technology is used by pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology companies as well as academic, government and not-for-profit research institutes.
