The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the electronics component company SMTX Corp (SMTX). I found the stock by sorting Barchart's New 52 Week Highlist first by the most frequent number of new highs than I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/14 the stock gained 23.29%.
