The Chart of the Day belongs to Maximus (MMS).   I found the government consulting firm by using Barchart to sort today's 52 Week High list 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  buy on 11/21 the stock gained 6.75%.

Maximus, Inc. is an extremely dynamic and complex organization that offers government and industry a range of unique services, products, and solutions.
