  • Pentair - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Mar 7, 2014 5:09 PM | about stocks: PNR

    The Chart of the Day is Pentair (NYSE:PNR). I found the stock by sorting the All Time New High list for new high frequency in the last month. I eliminated any stocks that do not have positive gains for the last week and month, then used the Flipchart feature to find the charts I like. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/11 the stock gained 7.11%.

    PNR is a diversified manufacturer that builds value for stakeholders by acquiring, renewing, and developing manufacturing companies. With $2.76 billion in annual sales, Pentair comprises two core business groups: water technologies and enclosures. Headquartered in Golden Valley,Minnesota, the company employs 13,000 people in more than 53 locations around the world.
