  • Hibbett Sports - Barchart Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Nov 19, 2013 3:50 PM | about stocks: 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.
