The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to management consulting firm The Hackett Group (HCKT). I found the stock by using Barchart to screen for stocks with a Weighted Alpha over 50.00+ and technical buy signals over 80%. That narrowed the 4900 stocks in the database down to 116. After sorting the list by the most frequent number of new hihgs in the last month, I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/22 the stock gained 9.02%.
