Diamondback Energy - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Diamondback Energy (FANG)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Diamondback Energy (NASDAQ:FANG). I found the stock by sorting the New High list for frequency in the last month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 4/14 the stock gained 28.21%.

FANG is an oil and natural gas company focused on the acquisition, development, exploration and exploitation of unconventional, onshore oil and natural gas reserves in the Permian Basin in West Texas. The Company's activities are primarily focused on the Clearfork, Spraberry, Wolfcamp, Cline, Strawn and Atoka formations.
