Hibbett Sports - Barchart Chart Of The Day

|Includes:Hibbett Sports, Inc. (HIBB)

The Chart of the Day is Hibbett Sports (NASDAQ:HIBB). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List for frequency then used the flipchart function to find a stocks with momentum I like. The stock gained 24.97% in the last quarter and since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/1 the stock gained 10.84%

It is a rapidly-growing operator of full-line sporting goods stores in small to mid-sized markets predominantly in the southeastern United States. Hibbett's stores offer a broad assortment of quality athletic equipment, footwear and apparel at competitive prices with superior customer service.
