The Best Of The NASDAQ 100

|Includes:ALTR, Fastenal Company (FAST), LLTC, TRIP, TXN

Today I used Barchart to sort the NASDAQ 100 Index to find the stocks with the best technical indicators and charts. First I sorted for new high frequency in the last month. Next I skipped the stocks that didn't have positive gains for the last week and month and didn't have a Trend Spotter buy. Lastly I used the Flipchart feature to find the charts I liked.

Today's list includes Fastenal (NASDAQ:FAST), Texas Instruments (NYSE:TXN), Linear Technology (NASDAQ:LLTC), Tripadvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP), Altera (NASDAQ:ALTR):
