The Chart of the Day belongs to Scientific Games (SGMS).  I found the lottery software stock by using Barchart to sort today's Top Stocks to Own list first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 4/28 the stock gained 10.95%.
