Vantiv - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Worldpay, Inc. (WP)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Vantiv (VNTV). I found the stock by sorting today's All Time High list for the stocks with the best technical buy signals, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy in 3/18 the stock is up 1.83%,
