Chart Of The Day: Apollo Asset Management - One Of My Favorite PE Companies

  • 100% technical buy signals
  • 16 new highs and up 15.12% in the last month
  • 65.79+ Weighted Alpha

The Chart of the Day belongs to the private equity/alternative asset management company Apollo Asset Management (APO). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening functions to find stocks with the highest technical buy signals, highest Weighted Alpha, superior current momentum and having a Trend Seeker buy signal then used the Flipchart  feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Seeker signaled a buy on 11/ 20 the stock gained 24.37%.
