  • UGI Corp - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Sep 4, 2014 5:50 PM | about stocks: UGI

    The Chart of the Day is UGI Corp (NYSE:UGI). I found the stock by sorting the 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 8/14 the stock gained 5.95%.

    UGI Corporation is a holding company that operates propane distribution, gas and electric utility, energy marketing and related businesses through subsidiaries. Our majority-owned subsidiary, AmeriGas Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, conducts one of the nation's largest retail propane distribution businesses through its subsidiary AmeriGas Propane, L.P.
