The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the biomedical company Xbiotech(XBIT). I found the stock by using the Barchart screener function and screened for stock having a Weighted Alpha of at least 25+ and a technical buy signal of 80% or more. Only 30 stocks made the cut. Next I sorted by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month and used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/18 the stock gained 53.34%.

XBiotech Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in discovering and developing True Human(TM) monoclonal antibodies for treating diseases. XBiotech Inc. is based in Austin, TX, United States.
