The Barchart Chart of the Day goes to the discount retailer Dollar General (NYSE:DG). I found the stock by sorting Barchart's New All-Time High list first by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then used the Flipchart function to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 9/14 the stock gained 5.04%.

A consumer staple recession-resistant discount store chain with strong financials. The company's dollar stores operate in rural areas and typically have a captive audience commanding market share. Initiatives such as pickup services and DG Fresh (self-distribution of frozen and refrigerated products) should support low teen earnings growth over the next several years. Further store expansion plans, a history of same store comp increases and growing dividend supports an out performance thesis.
