  • Rollins 0 Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Dec 30, 2013 11:40 AM | about stocks: ROL

    The Chart of the Day is Rollins (NYSE:ROL). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency in the last month and then eliminated the stock that did not have positive gains for the last week and month. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/15 the stock is up 8.31%.

    Rollins Inc. provides services to both residential and commercial customers. The four primary services provided are termite and pest control, protective services, lawn care and plantscaping. Orkin Exterminating Company, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary (Orkin), is one of the world's largest termite and pest control companies. Rollins Protective Services, a division of the Registrant, is a pioneer in developing customized wired and wireless electronic security systems.
