    Apr 24, 2014 5:05 PM | about stocks: ERF

    The Chart of the Day is Enerplus Corp (NYSE:ERF). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List for new high frequency in the last month then used thew Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 3/27 the stock gained 11.22% plus pays a 4.43% dividend.

    Enerplus Corporation, formerly known as Enerplus Resources, is an independent oil and gas production company with resources across Western Canada and the United States. The Company's resource plays include shallow gas/coal bed methane, tight gas, crude oil waterfloods, Bakken/Tight oil and oil sands located in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
