    Today I used Barchart to sort the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index for the stocks with the most frequent new highs in the last month. I did a second sort to zero in on the stock from that list that also had positive gains for the past week and month. The list includes Towers Watson & Co (NASDAQ:TW),WMS Industries (NYSE:WMS), Minerals Technologies (NYSE:MTX) , East West Bankcorp (EWB) and Meredith Corp (NYSE:MDP):
