The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the computer optics company Mitek Systems (MITK). I found the stock by using Barchart to sort the stocks hitting New 52 Week Highs today (of which there were only 3!) and then sorted for the most frequent number of new highs. As always I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/11 the stock gained 5.12%.
