Xencore - All Time High --
The Chart of the Day belongs to Xencor (XNCR). I found the bio-pharmaceutical stock by using Barchart to sort the All Time High list for the stocks with the highest technical buy signals, then used the flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 5/15 the stock gained 43.47%.
Xencor Inc. is a clinical-stage bio-pharmaceutical company. It develops antibodies for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, asthma and allergic diseases, and cancer. Xencor Inc. is based in Monrovia, California.
