  • 33.34% gain in the last year.

The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the outsourcing company Automatic Data Processing (Nasdaq: ADP). I found the company by sorting Barchart's All-Time High list first by the highest number of new highs in the last month, then used the Flipchart function to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/14 the stock gained 13.49%.
