MGP Ingredients - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: MGP Ingredients, Inc. (MGPI)

The Chart of the Day is MGP Ingredients (NASDAQ:MGPI). I found the stock by sorting the New High list for new high frequency in the last month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the chart for momentum. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 5/27 the stock is up 11.66%.

MGP Ingredients is a pioneer in producing and marketing value-added proteins and starches derived primarily from wheat. In addition, they produce natural food-grade alcohol for use in beverage, food and industrial applications, and fuel grade alcohol, commonly known as ethanol.
