The Andersons - Chart Of The Day

|Includes: The Andersons, Inc. (ANDE)

The Chart of the Day is The Andersons (NASDAQ:ANDE). In the last quarter the stock hit 25 new highs and advanced 25.19%. I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency and it was near the top.

It is a diversified company operating in three segments. The Agriculture Group engages in grain merchandising, operates grain elevator facilities, distributes wholesale agricultural fertilizer and operates retail farm centers. The Processing and Manufacturing Group includes the processing of lawn and corn-cob based products; the purchase, sale, repair and leasing of railcars; and the operation of automotive service centers.
