    Today I sorted the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index to find the stocks with the best technical indicators and charts. First, I sorted for new highs frequency in the last month, then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. I skipped over a lot of charts till I found the consistency I liked.

    Today list includes Essex Property Trust (NYSE:ESS), Mid-America Apartment Communities (NYSE:MAA), Old Dominion Freight Lines (NASDAQ:ODFL), Equinix(NASDAQ:EQIX), and Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE:OHI):
