  • Oiltanking Partners LP - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    May 16, 2014 11:20 AM | about stocks: OILT

    The Chart of the Day is Oiltanking Partners LP (NYSE:OILT). There are many different way to find great stocks on Barchart. Today I used the Signals screen under the Stock tab to find the top 10 performers then sorted them for new high frequency in the last month. I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts to find the one I liked best. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy ion 2/26 the stock has gained 40.97%.

    OILT is engaged in providing terminaling, storage and transportation of crude oil, refined petroleum products and liquefied petroleum gas. The Company provides its services to integrated oil companies, distributors, marketers and chemical and petrochemical companies. Its assets are located along the upper Gulf Coast of the United States.
