The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the building products company Louisiana-Pacific (NYSE:LPX). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening tools to find the stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals. After I sorted for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent prices appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/3 the stock gained 38.37%.
