Today's Chart of the Day belongs to PulteGroup (PHM).  Last night, I was discussing with Carole of Melbourne Beach all the different ways I used Barchart to select the Chart of the Day and how useful all of their sorting tools are.  Today I used Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks first for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more.  Next I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy in 8/15 the stock gained 32.94%.
