 STAA - Staar Surgical Co

The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to Staar Surgical (STAA). I found the eye care products stock by using Barchart to sort today's Top Stocks to Ownlist first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy in 8/3 the stock gained 4.75%.

Staar Surgical Company has evolved to become a developer, manufacturer and global distributor of products used by ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals to improve or correct vision in patients suffering from refractive conditions, cataracts and glaucoma.
