  • Avnet - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Dec 31, 2013 4:27 PM | about stocks: AVT

    The Chart of the Day is Avnet (NYSE:AVT). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency in the last month and then eliminated those stocks that did not have positive gains for the last week and month. I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy on 12/10 the stock is up 5.08%.

    It is one of the world's largest industrial distributors of electronic components and computer products. The company is a vital link in the chain that connects suppliers of semiconductors, interconnect products, passive and electromechanical devices to original equipment manufacturers and contract manufacturers that design and build the electronic equipment for end-market use, and to other industrial customers. The company markets, distributes and optimizes the supply-chain and provides design-chain services for the products of the world's leading electronic component suppliers, enterprise computer manufacturers and embedded subsystem providers.
