The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the analytical instruments company Bruker (Nasdaq: BRKR). 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 5/24 the stock gained 31.22%.
