The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to chemical products company WD-40(NASDAQ:WDFC). I found the stock by sorting Barchart's New 52 Week High list (only 4 stocks today) first by the most frequent number of new hihgs in the last month, then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. The stock is presently a Trend Spotter Hold.
