  • PAM Transportation Services - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Aug 1, 2014 10:08 AM | about stocks: PTSI

    The Chart of the Day belongs to PAM Transportation Services (NASDAQ:PSTI). I found the stock by sorting today's 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 6/30 the stock gained 24.32%.

    PTSI is an irregular route, common and contract motor carrier authorized to transport general commodities. The freight consists primarily of automotive parts, consumer goods, such as general retail store merchandise, and products from the manufacturing sector, such as heating and air conditioning units. All freight is transported as truckload quantities.

    As the economy improves trucking companies should benefit. Please use the 50 day moving average as a caution signal and exit at the 100 day moving average.
