My first pick for the New Year and the Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the solar technology company Enphase (ENPH). I found the stock by using Value Line to screen for stocks expected to have a compounded annual revenue growth rate of at least 20% over the next 5 years, then used Barchart to determine which stock had the most frequent number of new highs in the last month.

The Barchart Chart of the Day highlights stocks that are experiencing exceptional current price appreciation. They are not intended to be buy recommendations as these stock are extremely volatile and speculative. Should you decide to add one of these stocks to your investment portfolio it is highly suggested you follow a predetermined diversification and moving stop loss discipline that is consistent with your personal investment risk tolerance and reevaluate your stop losses at least on a weekly basis.
