  • Novartis AG - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    May 12, 2014 5:19 PM | about stocks: NVS

    The Chart of the Day is Novartis AG (NYSE:NVS). I fount the stock by sorting the 52 Week New High List for new high frequency in the last month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy on 3/34 the stock gained another 4.23%

    Novartis AG is committed to improving health and well-being through innovative products and services. The company aspires to capture and hold a leadership position in all of their businesses with a strong, sustainable performance based on continuous innovation. Their long-term success is founded on meeting the expectations of all our stakeholders - their customers, their people, their shareholders and the communities in which they live and work.
