Becton Dickinson - Chart of the Day

Becton Dickinson (BDX) is the Barchart Chart of the Day.  The dental supply company has a Trend Spotter buy signal, a weighted Alpha of 16.81+, gained 13.67% in the  last year and paid a 1.65% dividend.

The Chart of the Day belongs to Becton Dickinson (BDX).  I found the dental supply stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list first for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals over 80%.   Nest I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistency.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/24 the stock gained 9.48%

Becton, Dickinson and Co. is engaged principally in the manufacture and sale of a broad line of supplies, devices and systems used by health care professionals, medical research institutions and the general public. BD's operations consist of three worldwide business segments: Medical Systems, Biosciences, and Preanalytical Solutions.
