  • Kaiser Aluminum - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Aug 12, 2014 3:35 PM | about stocks: KALU

    The Chart of the Day belongs to Kaiser Aluminum (NASDAQ:KALU). I found the stock by sorting today's New 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 6/5 the stock gained 12.23%.

Repeatedly acknowledged as `Best in Class` among its global customer base, their 11 fabrication plants typically produce and ship more than 500 million pounds of product annually.
