  • 100% technical buy signals.
  • 17 new highs and up 27.51% in the last month.
  • 62.22% gain in the last year.

The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the Biomedical company Alkermes (Nasdaq: ALKS). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening tools to find the stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals. That resulted in a watch list of 37 stocks. After I sorted for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent prices appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 7/30 the stock gained 15.19%.
