The Barchart Chart of the Day is Clovis Oncology (NASDAQ:CLVS). I found the stock by sorting Barchart's New High List for frequency in the last month, skipped the stocks that did not have positive results for the last week and month and then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. The stock hit a recent low of 43.86 on 11/20 and since then is up 60.17%.
