The Chart of the Day belongs to the electrical control manufacturer Thermon Group (THR). I found the stock by sorting the Russell 3000 Index stocks first by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month and having a Trend Spotter buy signal then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter first signaled a buy on 7/28, the stock gained 23.94%.
