  • Pilgrim's Pride - Barchart Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Jul 13, 2014 8:55 PM | about stocks: PPC

    The Chart of the Day belongs to Pilgrim's Pride (NYSE:PPC). I found the stock by sorting the New High list for new high frequency in the last month ten used the Flipchart feature to find the charts I liked. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 6/18 the stock gained 17.51%.

    PPC is one of the largest chicken companies in the US, Mexico and Puerto Rico. The company's fresh chicken retail line is sold throughout the US, throughout Puerto Rico, and in the northern and central regions of Mexico. Its prepared chicken products meet the needs of some of the largest customers in the food service industry across the US. Additionally, the Company exports commodity chicken products to over 90 countries. As a vertically integrated company, it controls every phase of the production of its products. The company operates feed mills, hatcheries, processing plants and distribution centers in US, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
