The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage (NGVC).  I found the specialty grocer by using Barchart to sort today's Top Stocks to Own first by the highest Weighted Alpha then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation in the last 6 months.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 5/7 the stock gained 84.87%.
