Acadia Pharmaceuticals - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. (ACAD)

The Chart of the Day is Acadia Pharmaceutical (NASDAQ:ACAD). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for the stocks with the best technical buy signals then used the Flipchart feature to review the stocks. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/10 the stock gained 6.54%.

Acadia Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecule drugs for the treatment of central nervous system disorders. Their three clinical programs are ACP-103 for treatment-induced dysfunction in Parkinson's disease, and ACP-104 and ACP-103, both for the treatment of schizophrenia.
