Validus -- All Time High

Validus (VR) is the Barchart Chart of the Day.  The insurance brokerage company has a Trend Spotter buy signal, a Weighted Alpha of 20.75+, gained 21.34% in the last year and paid a 2.92% dividend.

The Chart of the Day belongs to Validus (VR).  I found the insurance brokerage stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list for the stocks with the highest technical buy signals, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy on 6/1 the stock gained 2.51%.

Validus Holdings, Ltd., through its principal operating subsidiary Validus Reinsurance, Ltd., is a global provider of short-tail lines of reinsurance including property catastrophe, property pro-rata and property per risk, marine and energy, and other specialty lines. Validus was formed in December following the significant natural catastrophes of 2005 with an experienced management team and an unencumbered capital base of approximately $1 billion.
