Scana Corp - Chart Of The Day

|Includes: SCANA Corporation (SCG)

The Chart of the Day is Scana Corp (NYSE:SCG). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for the most frequent new highs in the last month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/14 the stock gained 8.06%.

Scana Corporation is an energy-based holding company whose businesses include regulated electric and natural gas utility operations, telecommunications and other non-regulated energy-related businesses. Scana's subsidiaries serve electric customers in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.
