The Chart of the Day belongs to Heritage Commerce (HTBK). I found the California based commercial bank by using Barchart to sort today's New High list first by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again by technical buy signals of 80% or better. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 8/5 the stock gained 7.29%.
