Linkined Turnaround

|Includes:LinkedIn (LNKD)

The Chart of the Day, Linkedin (NYSE:LNKD) is a turnaround situation. I found the stock by sorting today's 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 7/23 the stock gained 27.13%.
