  • Chesapeake Lodging Trust - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    May 5, 2014 5:35 PM | about stocks: CHSP

    The Chart of the Day is Chesapeake Lodging Trust (NYSE:CHSP). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for new high frequency in the last month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 4/22 the stock gained 4.78%.

    Chesapeake Lodging Trust is a real estate investment trust. It is a self-advised hotel investment company focused on investments in upper upscale hotels in business, airport, convention markets, and select-service hotels in urban settings or locations in the United States.
