The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the computer software company Aspen Technology (AZPN). I found the stock by using Barchart to sort today's New 52 Week High list by the most frequent number of new hihgs in the last month, then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 8/6 the stock gained 11.83%.
