Transcontinental Realty Investors - Barchart's

|Includes: Transcontinental Realty Investors Inc. (TCI)

The Barchart Chart of the Day is Transcontinental Realty Investors (NYSE:TCI). I found the stock by using Barchart to sort today's New High List for frequency in the last month, skipped any stocks not having positive gains in both the last week and month and then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/30 the stock gained 27.60%.

TCI invests in real estate through direct equity ownership and partnerships and financing real estate and real estate related activities through investments in mortgage loans, including first, wraparound and junior mortgage loans.
