Skechers - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes:Skechers USA Inc. (SKX)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Skechers (NYSE:SKX). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List of new high frequency in the last month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 7/18 the stock gained 14.36%.

SKX designs and markets branded contemporary casual, active, rugged and lifestyle footwear for men, women and children. The Company sells its products to department stores such as Nordstrom, Macy's, Dillards, Robinson's-May and JC Penney and specialty retailers such as Genesco's Journeys and Jarman chains.and the Venator Group's Foot Locker and Lady Foot Locker chains, Pacific Sunwear and Footaction U.S.A.
