The 5 Best Mid Caps

Today I used Barchart to sort the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index for frequency. I then skipped over the stocks that did not have positive gains for the last week and month, next I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts.

Today's list includes Post Holdings (NYSE:POST), Raymond James Financial (RFJ), Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII), Olin Corporation (NYSE:OLN) and ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ:ACIW):
