York Water - Chart Of The Day

|Includes: The York Water Company (YORW)

The Chart of the Day is York Water (NASDAQ:YORW). I found the water supply stock by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks for the highest technical buy signals then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/15 the stock gained 5.28%.

The York Water Company impounds, purifies and distributes water. They are regulated by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission in the areas of billing, payment procedures, dispute processing, terminations, service territory, and rate setting. They must obtain PPUC approval before changing any of the aforementioned procedures.
