  • Affymetrix (AFFX) - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 1 comment
    Jul 11, 2013 5:43 PM | about stocks: AFFX

    The Chart of the Day is Affymetrix (NASDAQ:AFFX). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency and this stock was near the top. The stock hit 18 new highs and gained 44.17% in the last month and continues to climb.

    The company's scientists invented the world's first high-density microarray and began selling the first commercial microarray. Since then, their GeneChip technology has become the industry standard in molecular biology research. The firm's technology is used by the world's top pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology companies as well as leading academic, government and not-for-profit research institutes. Their patented photolithographic manufacturing process provides the most information capacity available today on an array, enabling researchers to use a whole-genome approach to analyzing the relationship between genetics and health.
