Β The Chart of the Day belongs to casual apparel company Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) . Β I found the stock by using Barchart’s powerful screening functions to find stocks with the highest technical buy signals, highest Weighted Alpha, superior current momentum and having a Trend Seeker buy signal then used the Flipchart Β feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation.Β Since the Trend Seeker signaled a buy on 5 /6 the stock gained 6.52%.

  • Wall Street analysts issued 3 strong buy, 1 buy and 5 hold recommendations
  • Value Line has the stock rated its average rating of 3 with a mid-point price target of $151
  • CFRAs MarketScope has a Β 3 star hold ratingΒ

  • Only 28,610 investors monitor the stock on Seeking Alpha

Additional disclosure: The Barchart Chart of the Day highlights stocks that are experiencing exceptional current price appreciation. They are not intended to be buy recommendations as these stocks are extremely volatile and speculative. Should you decide to add one of these stocks to your investment portfolio it is highly suggested you follow a predetermined diversification and moving stop loss discipline that is consistent with your personal investment risk tolerance and reevaluate your stop losses at least on a weekly basis.
