Realty and Income stocks rule the Mid-Caps today. Today's list come from using Barchart to sort the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index for frequency of new highs in the last month. I skipped the stocks that didn't have positive gains in the last week and month and used the Flipchart feature to find the charts I liked.

Today's list includes Alexandria Real Estate Equities (NYSE:ARE), MDU Resources Group (NYSE:MDU), Mid-America Apartment Communities (NYSE:MAA),Realty Income Corp (NYSE:O), and Jones Land LaSalle (NYSE:JLL):
