The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the construction products company Builders FirstSource (NYSE:BLDR). I found the stock by using the Value Line Investment Survey screener to find the stocks that are in the 100th percentile in their Price Growth Persistence ranking. They rank almost 4100 stocks for their Price Growth Persistence so these are the best in their view. I loaded that list into Barchart, then sorted for the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals and used the flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/7, the stock gained 53.52%.

The Barchart Chart of the Day highlights stocks that are experiencing exceptional current price appreciation. They are not intended to be buy recommendations as these stocks are extremely volatile and speculative. Should you decide to add one of these stocks to your investment portfolio, it is highly suggested you follow a predetermined diversification and moving stop-loss discipline that is consistent with your personal investment risk tolerance and reevaluate your stop losses at least on a weekly basis.
