|Includes: Universal Insurance Holdings, Inc (UVE)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Universal Insurance Holdings (NYSEMKT:UVE). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for the stocks having the best technical buy signals, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy on 1/13 the sock gained 11.11%.
