Alexander And Baldwin (ALEX) Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. (ALEX)

Alexander and Baldwin (NYSE:ALEX) can up on my radar when I sorted the Barchart New High list for frequency and noticed the price has been up on all 20 for the last 20 trading sessions. The revenue and earnings aren't that impressive but look what assets are on the balance sheet. The Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/26 at 29.41

Company press release: ALEX "is a premier Hawaii land company, with interests in real estate development, commercial real estate and agriculture. With ownership of approximately 88,000 acres in Hawaii, A&B is the State's fourth largest private landowner, and is one of the state's most active real estate investors. A&B has a diverse portfolio of real estate development projects throughout Hawaii, and a commercial property portfolio comprising 8 million square feet of leasable space in Hawaii and on the U.S. Mainland. It is also the owner and operator of the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar plantation on Maui, and a significant provider of renewable energy on the islands of Maui and Kauai."
