The Chart of the Day is Novo Nordisk (NVO). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for frequency in the last month, skipped the stocks that did not have positive gains for the last week and month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the stocks. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/29 the stock gained 23.69%.
NVO is a leader in insulin and diabetes care and also manufactures and markets a variety of other pharmaceutical products. The company is the world's largest producer of industrial enzyme products.

Solid gains in revenue and earnings in a financially stable stock makes it a good pick. The focus should be on the high P/E ratio of 25.89. Watch the 50 day moving average for weakness and use the 100 day moving average for an exit point.
