Flagstar Bancorp - Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Flagstar Bancorp, Inc. (FBC)

The Chart of the Day is Flagstar Bancorp (NYSE:FBC). I found the savings bank stock by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks first for a Weighted Alpha of over 50.00+ then again for technical buy signals of 80% or better. Next I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 9/14 the stock gained 12.34%.
