The Chart of the Day is the Cabot Corp (NYSE:CBT). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High List for new high frequency in the last month and it was right near the top of the list. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/14 the stock gained 13.78%.

CBT is a global specialty chemicals and materials company. Cabot's major products are carbon black, fumed silica, inkjet colorants, and aerogels. Cabot has manufacturing plants located in countries around the world.
