Best Chart of a Stock You Never Heard Of

Looking through a lot of charts the past 24 hours to see what is strong and it is a very weird mix.  Aside from the usual cohort of momo favorites, the relative strength is in utilities, natural gas, a portion of REITs (not all of them), paper & packing companies, consumer non discretionary, and semiconductors (which were on everyone's shun list 2 weeks ago).  Utilities and consumer non discretionary usually rally during times of caution, whereas semi's and paper/packing companies rally on thoughts of cyclical expansion.  So 2 completely opposite economic themes (slowdown and expansion) are rallying concurrently.  Hopefully HAL9000 shows up and explains its reasoning behind these head scratching developments.


I've been watching LogMeIn (LOGM) for about 3 weeks now - probably the best chart of a stock no one has ever heard of.

This is one of those stocks right at the cusp of the amount of volume I prefer to deal with.  While the 'average' is over 200K shares a day that is overstating it as May showed unusual volume - many days are like today when only 55K shares (thus far) have traded.   Fine for an individual but a bit more tricky for any decent sized institution.   Good enough in terms of market cap however at $650M+.

What do they do?

LogMeIn, Inc. provides on-demand, remote-connectivity solutions to small and medium-sized businesses, information technology (IT) service providers, and consumers in the United States and internationally.
