The Chart of the Day belongs to the electrical control manufacturer TransDigm Group (TDG). I found the stock by sorting the Russell 3000 Index stocks first by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month and having a Trend Spotter buy signal, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter first signaled a buy on 7/20, the stock gained 15.81%.
