Chemed - Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Chemed Corporation (CHE)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Chemed (NYSE:CHE). I found the hospice care and home services stock buy using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list first for the most frequent new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more.

Chemed Corporation is the nation's largest provider of end-of-life hospice care services through its VITAS Healthcare Corporation subsidiary. Chemed also maintains a presence in the residential and commercial repair-and-maintenance industry through two subsidiaries. Roto-Rooter is North America's largest provider of plumbing and drain cleaning services. Service America Network Inc. provides major-appliance and heating/air-conditioning repair, maintenance, and replacement services.
