The Chart of the Day belongs to Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). I found the semi-conductor stock by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks first for the highest Weighted Alpha then for technical buy signals of 80% or more. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 6/30 the stock gained 29.38%.
