  • Splunk Is Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Feb 27, 2014 4:02 PM | about stocks: SPLK

    The Chart of the Day is Splunk Inc (NASDAQ:SPLK). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for frequency in the last month and skipped the stocks that didn't have gains in the last week and month. Then I used the Flipchart feature to review the stocks. since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/7 the stock is up 20.82%.

    SPLK provides a software platform, which collects and indexes data and enables users to search, correlate, analyze, monitor and report on this data, all in real time. Its software is designed to help users in various roles, including IT and business professionals.
