  • Booz Allen Hamilton Holdings Is A Buy 0 comments
    May 9, 2014 4:53 PM | about stocks: BAH

    The Chart of the Day is Booz Allen Hamilton Holdings (NYSE:BAH). I found the stock by sorting the 52 Week 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 9.95%.

    BAH is engaged in providing management and technology consulting services to the U.S. government in the defense, intelligence and civil markets. Technological services offered by the Company include Cyber technologies, SE&I, Systems development and Strategic technology and innovation. Its major clients include the Department of Defense, all branches of the U.S. military, the U.S. Intelligence Community, and civil agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of the Treasury and the Environmental Protection Agency.

    Consulting work is a variable business sector and depending on government contract can be a gamble. Use the 50 day moving average as a signal of weakness and exit at the 100 day moving average.
