Solar and wind power


The Chart of the Day belongs to the solar power company Altus Power (AMPS). I found the stock by sorting Barchart's All-Time High list 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 7/29, the stock gained 77.81%.
