AutoNation - Barchart's Chart of the Day

AutoNation (AN) is the Barchart Chart of the Day.  The new and used auto retailer has a Trend Spotter buy signal, a Weighted Alpha of 27.30+ and gained 23.25% in the last year.

The Chart of the Day belongs to AutoNation (AN).  I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for the stocks with the highest technical buy signals and then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/3 the stock gained 9.30%.
