    The "Chart of the Day" is Verisign (VRSN), which showed up on Friday's list of stocks that had a new "Buy" signal from the Barchart "TrendSpotter" trading system. Verisign last Friday rallied by 2.68%, adding to the previous session's 3.5% rally and posting a new 3-year high of $35.67. A rally above the 9-1/2 year high of $36.09 posted in June 2008 would be a particularly bullish technical development. In recent news on the stock, Verisign on April 28 reported in-line EPS of 32 cents and declared a special dividend of $2.75 per share. CLSA on April 12 reiterated its Outperform rating on Verisign and raised its target to $41 from $38 due to strong domain registration trends and the renewal of the .NET and .COM registry contracts. Verisign, with a market cap of $6 billion, provides infrastructure services to website owners, enterprises, electronic commerce service providers and individuals.
