Summary

15 new highs and up 18.27% in the last month.

The Barchart Chart of the Day is the trucking company Saia (SAIA).  I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening tools to find the stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and highest technical buy signals.  I sorted that list 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 on 7/12 the stock gained 43.95%.
