 WU - Western Union Company

The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the financial services company Western Union (WU). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening tool to find stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals then sorted them by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month. I then used the Flipchart feature to reviews the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy in 9/27 the stock gained 15.60%.
