Intersil - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes:Intersil Corporation (ISIL)

The Chart of the Day is Intersil (NASDAQ:ISIL). I found the stock by sorting the New High list for new high frequency in the last month, then used the Flipcahrt feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 5/9 the stock gained 17.55%.
