|Includes: Patrick Industries, Inc. (PATK)

The Chart of the Day is Patrick Industries (NASDAQ:PATK). I found the stock near the top of the New High List when I sorted it for frequency. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 8/20 the stock is up over 15.77%.

It is a manufacturer and supplier of building products and materials to the manufactured housing and recreational vehicle industries. They are expanding as a supplier to certain other industrial markets, such as furniture manufacturing, marine and the automotive aftermarket. They manufacture decorative vinyl and paper panels, cabinet doors, counter tops, aluminum extrusions, drawer sides and wood adhesives.
