  • FelCor Lodging Trusts - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Mar 12, 2014 1:13 PM | about stocks: FCH

    The Chart of the Day is FelCor Lodging Trust (NYSE:FHC). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High List for new high frequency in the last month and then eliminated the stocks that didn't have positive gains in the last week and month. Finally I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/26 the stock gained 10.01%.

    FCH, a real estate investment trust, is one of the nation's largest owners of upper-upscale, all-suite hotels. FelCor's diversified portfolio of hotels and resorts are flagged under global brands such as: Doubletree , Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton, Fairmont, Marriott, Renaissance, Sheraton, Westin and Holiday Inn.
