The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the sugar and ethanol company Cosan (CZZ). I found the stock by sorting Barcharts Top 100 stocks first by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 9/11 the stock gained 11.74%.

Cosan is the leading global ethanol and sugar company in terms of production with low-cost, large-scale and integrated operations in Brazil. Their production is based on sugarcane, a competitive and viable feedstock for ethanol, sugar and energy because of its low production cost and high energy efficiency ratio relative to other ethanol sources, such as corn and sugarbeet.
