Edison International - Chart Of The Day


96% technical buy signal

Increasing Revenue and Earnings

Wall Street analysts list 4 stron buy and 4 hold recommendations

The Chart of the Day is Edison International (EIX).  I found the international utility stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list first for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or better.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/20 the stock gained 11.65%.

Edison International is an international electric power generator, distributor and structured finance provider. Edison International is one of the industry leaders in privatized, deregulated and incentive-regulated markets and power generation. It is the parent company of Edison Mission Energy, Southern California Edison, Edison Capita, Edison Enterprises and Edison O&M Services.
