  • PPL Corp - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    May 2, 2014 4:27 PM | about stocks: PPL

    The Chart of the Day is PPL Corp (NYSE:PPL). I found the chart by sorting the New High List for new high frequency in the last month then used the FlipChart feature to review the charts. The Trend Spotter has signaled a series of buys since the first of February and since the first of the year the stock is up 15.20%.

    PPL is an energy and utility holding company. PPL controls more than 12,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the United States, sells energy in key U.S. markets and delivers electricity to customers in Pennsylvania and the United Kingdom.

    Fundamental factors:


    • Market Cap $21.33 billion

    • Dividend yield 4.47%
    • Revenue predicted to be down 3.10% this year but up again by 1.10% next year
    • Earnings estimated to decrease by 11.00% this year but increase again by 1.40% next year and continue to increase at an annual rate of .67% for the next 5 years
