The Chart of the Day belongs to Sysco (SYY). I found the wholesale food distributor by using Barchart to sort the All Time High list first for the most frequent new highs in the last month, then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/1 the stock gained 8.25%.
Sysco Corporation is the largest North American distributor of food and food related products to the food service or `food-prepared-away-from-home` industry.
