  • Tree House Foods - Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Oct 30, 2013 4:29 PM | about stocks: THS

    Today's Chart of the Day is Treehouse Foods (NYSE:THS). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency making sure the stocks had positive gains for the last week and month then panned through the charts. The stock broke out back on 10/11 and since then is up 7.32%.

    It is a food manufacturer servicing primarily the retail grocery and food service channels. Its products include pickles and related products; non-dairy powdered coffee creamer; and other food products including aseptic sauces, refrigerated salad dressings, and liquid non-dairy creamer.
