American Financial Group - Chart Of The Day

The Chart of the Day belongs to America Financial Group (NYSE: AFG). I found the insurance and annuity stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list first for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy in 11/18 the stock gained 12.55%.

American Financial Group is a holding company which, through its subsidiaries, is engaged primarily in private passenger automobile and specialty property and casualty insurance businesses and in the sale of tax-deferred annuities and certain life and supplemental health insurance products.
