  • LyindellBasell Industires - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Feb 26, 2014 4:48 PM | about stocks: LYB

    The Chart of the Day is LynodellBasell Industries (NYSE:LYB). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for new high frequency in the last month. I skipped over the stock that didn't have positive gains in the last week and month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/7 the stock gained 8.15%.

    LYB is a manufactures chemicals and derivatives. It also operates as a refiner of heavy high-sulfur crude oil produce and is engaged in the marketing and selling of polyolefins, polypropylene and polyethylene resins. Their products and technologies are used to make items that improve the quality of life for people around the world including packaging, electronics, automotive components, home furnishings, construction materials and biofuels. The Company's product range includes ethylene, propylene, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyolefins, resins, PP compounds, Polybutene, propylene Oxide and etc. It also produces refined petroleum products and gasoline blending components, including biofuels.
