    Sep 10, 2013 6:34 PM | about stocks: FSS

    The Chart of the Day is Federal Signal (NYSE:FSS). The stock was found right at the top of the New High List when I sorted it for frequency. Since its last Trend Spotter buy signal back on 8/9 the stock is up 23.05%.

    It is a manufacturer and worldwide supplier of safety, signaling and communications equipment, hazardous area lighting, fire rescue products, street sweeping and vacuum loader vehicles, parking control equipment, custom on-premise signage, carbide cutting tools, precision punches and related die components.
