Rex American Resources Corp Hits All Time High

|Includes: REX American Resources Corporation (REX)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Rex American Resources (NYSE:REX). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List for new high frequency in the last month. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 5/28 the stock gained 30.19%.

REX is engaged in the production and sale of ethanol and distillers grains. The Company owns interests in corn or sorghum-based ethanol production facilities in Illinois, Iowa and Texas. The Company also intends to monetize its real estate assets via leases and property sales, as market conditions allow.
