Amphastar Pharmaceuticals - Chart Of The Day

The Chart of the Day is Amphastar Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:AMPH). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for the stock with the highest technical buy signals then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy n 12/2 the stock gained 32.00%.
