Servisfirst Bancshares - Chart Of The Day

|Includes: ServisFirst Bancshares, Inc. (SFBS)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Servifirst Bancshares (NASDAQ:SFBS). I found the southeastern savings bank by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks first for a Weighted Alpha of 50.00+ or more, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or better, then for a 50-100 Day MACD Oscillator buy signal. That filtered 3000 stocks down to 54. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/20 the stock gained 6.38%
