Xcel Energy - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes:Xcel Energy Inc (XEL)

Today's Chart of the Day is Xcel Energy (NYSE:XEL) which I found by sorting the New High list for frequency and flipping through the charts. With both a Trend Spotter buy and a 100% Barchart technical buy signal the stock deserves your attention. 6 new highs and up 3.22% in the last month.

The Company is predominantly an operating public utility engaged in the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and the transportation, storage and distribution of natural gas.
