Today I used Barchart to sort the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index for the stocks hitting the most frequency new high in the last month. I skipped over the stocks that did not have positive increases for both the last week and month and eliminated those that hadn't established long term trends.

Today's list includes Temper-Pedic International (NYSE:TPX), Copart (NASDAQ:CPRT), RR Donnelley & Sons (NASDAQ:RRD), Gartner Inc (NYSE:IT) and First American (NYSE:FAF):
