The Chart of the Day belongs to the coal producer Ramaco Resources (METC). I found the stock by sorting Barchart's All Time High list first by the highest Weighted Alpha, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 3/2, the stock gained 5.27%.

Analysts and Investor sentiment

I don't buy stocks because everyone else is buying but I do realize that if major firms and investors are dumping a stock, it's hard to make money swimming against the tide:

  • Wall Street analysts issued 1 strong buy, 5 buy opinions on the stock
  • Consensus price target is 18.65 but some analysts have a price target as high as 31.00
  • The individual investors following the stock on Motley Fool voted 6 to 3 for the stock to beat the market
  • 2,240 investors are monitoring the stock on Seeking Alpha

Additional disclosure: The Barchart Chart of the Day highlights stocks that are experiencing exceptional current price appreciation. They are not intended to be buy recommendations as these stocks are extremely volatile and speculative. Should you decide to add one of these stocks to your investment portfolio it is highly suggested you follow a predetermined diversification and moving stop loss discipline that is consistent with your personal investment risk tolerance and reevaluate your stop losses at least on a weekly basis.
