The Chart of the Day belongs to Weight Watchers International (WTW).  I found the weight control by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then for technical buy signals of 80% or more.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 8/7 the stock gained 9.83%.

Weight Watchers International, Inc. is the largest provider of weight control programs in the world. The core of their business is weekly meetings, in which they present their scientifically designed program, incorporating group support and education about healthy eating patterns, behavior modification and physical activity.
