  • Federal Realty Investment Trust - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Jul 11, 2014 8:13 AM | about stocks: FRT

    The Chart of the Day belongs to Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE:FRT). 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 6/27 the stock gained 1.41%.

    FRT is an owner, operator & redeveloper of retail properties. The Trust's strategy is to acquire older, well-located properties in prime, densely populated & affluent areas & to enhance their operating performance through a program of renovation, expansion, reconfiguration & retenanting. The Trust's traditional focus has been on community & neighborhood shopping centers that are anchored by supermarkets, drug stores or high volume, value oriented retailers that provide consumer necessities.
