  • Chemed - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Jul 10, 2014 3:33 PM | about stocks: CHE

    The Chart of the Day belongs to Chemed (NYSE:CHE). 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 5.27 the stock gained 8.33%.

    CHE is the nation's largest provider of end-of-life hospice care services through its VITAS Healthcare Corporation subsidiary. Chemed also maintains a presence in the residential and commercial repair-and-maintenance industry through two subsidiaries. Roto-Rooter is North America's largest provider of plumbing and drain cleaning services. Service America Network Inc. provides major-appliance and heating/air-conditioning repair, maintenance, and replacement services.
