Lam Research - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Lam Research Corporation (LRCX)

The Chart of the Day is Lam Research (NASDAQ:LRCX). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List for new high frequency in the last month then used the Flipchart feature to find the chart I liked. Since the Tredn Spotter signaled a buy on 4/24 the stock gained 10.71%.
