  • Homeaway (AWAY) - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Feb 28, 2013 4:42 PM | about stocks: AWAY

    Homeaway (NASDAQ:AWAY) is today's Chart of the Day. I found it by using theBarchart New High list and sorted for frequency. Since the stocks hit a Trend Spotter buy on 1/3 at 22.11 the stock had a steady climb of 33.65%. In the last 20 trading sessions the stock hit 18 new highs and is up 27.22% for the month.

    The Company offers apartments, castles, condos, estates, hotels, homes, studios, town homes, and villas. It publishes detailed property listings, including photographs, descriptions, location, pricing, availability, and contact information.
