  • Education Management Corp - Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Oct 15, 2013 4:39 PM | about stocks: EDMC

    The Chart of the Day is Education Management Corp (NASDAQ:EDMC). Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 7/15 the sock is up 52.68%. I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency and then used the flipchart feature to review the charts.

    It provides post-secondary education in North America and offers campus-based and online instructions to enable students earn undergraduate and graduate degrees, including doctoral degrees and certain specialized non-degree diplomas in various disciplines. The company offers education through the Art Institutes, Argosy University, the Brown Mackie Colleges, and South University, as well as Western State University College of Law, which offers Juris Doctor Degrees; and the Ventura Group, which provides education courses for K-12 educators, as well as courses and materials for postgraduate licensure examinations in the human services fields.
