Methanex - MEOH
The Chart of the Day is Methanex (MEOH). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for frequency of new highs in the last month then eliminated the stocks that did not have positive gains for the last week and month. I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/7 the stock gained 17.72%.
