    Sep 18, 2013 12:24 PM | about stocks: LECO, SMTC, REGN, IDTI, NATI

    Today I used Barchart to sort the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index to find the stocks with the most frequent new highs in the last month. I then used the flipchart feature to pan through the charts to find stocks that fit my criteria. Today's list includes Lincoln Electric Holdings (LECO), Semtech(SMTC), Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN), Integrated Device Technology (IDTI), National Instruments (NATI):
