    The "Chart of the Day" is Unilever (UL), which showed up on Monday's list of stocks that had a new "Buy" signal from the Barchart "TrendSpotter" trading system and also showed up on Barchart's "All Time High" list and the "Gap Up" list. Unilever on Monday gapped upward to an all-time high of $33.68 and closed the day up 2.16%. In recent news on the stock, the Daily Mail reported that Unilever pushed through a 5.1% price increase in Q2, passing through some of the sharp increases in commodity prices. The company has also trimmed expenses in response to a 15% increase in raw materials costs by freezing salaries and slashing travel budgets. Unilever on Aug 4 reported Q2 EPS of 77 euro cents and reported that underlying sales growth improved to 7.1% from 3.6% in the year-earlier quarter. Unilever, with a market cap of $94 billion, is a UK-based global producer of branded and packaged consumer goods, including food, detergents and personal care products.
