Summary

100% technical buy signals.

18 new highs and up 88.04% in the last month.

112.70% gain in the  last year.

The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the nutritional products retailer Vitamin Shoppe (VSI).  I found the stock by using Barchart to sort today's  New 52 Week High list first by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more.  I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation over the last 6 months. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 7/20 the stock gained 76.19%.
