US Concrete - ALLTime High --
The Chart of the Day belongs to US Concrete (USCR). I found the concrete products stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list for the stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 7/13 the stock gained 32.38%.
