  • NXP Semiconductor - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Feb 6, 2014 4:32 PM | about stocks: NXPI

    The Chart of the Day is NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI). I found the stock by using Barchart to sort today's New High List for frequency in the last month and NXPI was right at the op of the list. Since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy in 1/15 the stock gained 9.03%.
