  • Today's 5 Best Small Caps 0 comments
    Mar 18, 2014 2:35 PM | about stocks: BH, HPY, SONC, MEAS, JACK

    Today I used Barchart to find the stocks in the S&P 600 Small Cap Index with the best technical indicators and charts. First I sorted the Index for stock having the most frequent new highs in the last month, then eliminated those that weren't a Trend Spotter buy or didn't have positive gains in the last week and month. Then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts.

    Today's list includes Biglari Holdings (NYSE:BH), Heartland Payment Systems (NYSE:HPY), Sonic Corp (NASDAQ:SONC), Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ:MEAS) andJack in the Box (NASDAQ:JACK):
