WebMD - Chart of the Day

WebMD (WBMD) is the Barchart Chart of the Day.  The Internet content stock has a Trend Spotter buy signal, a Weighted Alpha of 31.20+ and gained 27.00% in the last year.

The Chart of the Day belongs to WebMD (WBMD).  I found the Internet content stock by using Barchart to sort today's 52 week high list fo the highest technical buy signals, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts.  since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy in 11/4 the stock gained 16.52%.

WebMD announced that  has signed an agreement to acquire Conceptis Technologies Inc., a Montreal-based provider of online and offline medical education and promotion aimed at physicians and other healthcare professionals. Conceptis has been successful in developing a strong online presence in the cardiology community and is highly respected for the depth and breadth of content contained on its flagship. With the combination of two of the leading cardiology channels on the Internet, Medscape Cardiology and, WebMD is well positioned to further its lead and penetration in this high value segment of medical marketing.
