Illumina - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes:Illumina, Inc. (ILMN)

The Chart of the Day is Illumina (NASDAQ:ILMN). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for frequency in the last month then used the Flipchart feature to find the best chart. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/22 the stock soared 62.88%.

ILMN is a developer of next-generation tools for the large-scale analysis of genetic variation and function. The company's tools will provide information that could be used to improve drugs and therapies, customize diagnoses and treatment, and cure disease. The company is developing a comprehensive line of products that can address the scale of experimentation and the breadth of functional analysis required to achieve the goals of molecular medicine.
