The Chart of the Day belongs to the apparel manufacturer Phillips-Van Heusen (PVH), states Jim Van Meerten of

I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening functions to find stocks with the highest technical buy signals, highest Weighted Alpha, superior current momentum, and a Trend Seeker buy signal. I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Seeker signaled a buy on 11 /15 the stock gained 44.99%.

Analysts and Investor Sentiment: I don't buy stocks because everyone else is buying but I do realize that if major firms and investors are dumping a stock it's hard to make money swimming against the tide:

  • Wall Street analysts issued six strong buy, five buy, and seven hold  recommendations on the stock
  • Analysts' price targets are between $80 and $158—despite positive recommendations the average price target is $113 which is about 6% below today's price
  • The individual investors following the stock on Motley Fool voted 209 to 27 for the stock to beat the market with the most experienced investors voting 49 to three for the same result
  • Value Line gives the stock an above-average rating of two but has an 18-month price target of $92—which is about 25% below today's price.
  • CFRA's MarketScope gives the stock a four-star strong buy recommendation but has a price target of $125 only 2% above today's price—a four-star buy for only 2%?????
  • 13,080 investors monitor the stock on Seeking Alpha

Special Note: With all the professionals having strong buy and buy recommendations does it make sense that their price targets are below today's price???  This is a good reason why you should do your research and think for yourself

Additional Disclosure: The Barchart Chart of the Day highlights stocks that are experiencing exceptional current price appreciation. They are not intended to be buy recommendations as these stocks are extremely volatile and speculative. Should you decide to add one of these stocks to your investment portfolio it is highly suggested you follow a predetermined diversification and moving stop loss discipline that is consistent with your personal investment risk tolerance and reevaluate your stop losses at least weekly.
