The Chart of the Day belongs to Federated Investors (FII). I found the investment management stock by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks first by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy n 11/28 the stock gained 14.14%.
