  • Carriage Services - CVS - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Mar 7, 2013 5:51 PM | about stocks: CSV

    Carriage Services (NYSE:CSV) was chosen as today's Chart of the Day for being right at the top of Barchart's New High list when sorted for frequency. In the last 20 trading sessions the stock has advanced 14 times for a gain of 32.24%. Since triggering a Trend Spotter buy signal on 12/31 the stock is up 63.44%.

    If nothing is sure but death and taxes then CSV deserves a look as a provider of a complete range of services relating to funerals, burials and cremations, including the use of funeral homes and motor vehicles, the performance of cemetery interment services and the management and maintenance of cemetery grounds.
