  • Idacorp - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Jul 30, 2013 6:18 PM | about stocks: IDA

    The Chart of the Day is Idacorp (NYSE:IDA). The stock was near the top of the list when I sorted the New High List for frequency. 7 new highs and a price increase of 10.66% in the last month is a good sign.

    It is an electric public utility company. The company is engaged in the generation, purchase, transmission, distribution and sale of electric energy primarily in the areas including southern Idaho, eastern Oregon and northern Nevada. The company relies heavily on hydroelectric power for its generating needs and is one of the nation's few investor-owned utilities with a predominantly hydro base. The company's principal commercial and industrial customers include lodges, condominiums, and ski lifts and related facilities.
