  • Weyerhaeuser - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Aug 20, 2014 5:47 PM | about stocks: WY

    The Chart of the Day belongs to Weyerhaeuser (NYSE:WY). I found the stock by sorting the New High List of the best technical buy signals, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 8/14 the stock gained 2.87%.

    WY is principally engaged in the growing and harvesting of timber and the manufacture, distribution and sale of forest products, real estate development and construction, and other real estate related activities. Its business segments are timber lands, wood products,pulp, paper and packaging; plus real estate and related assets.
