Vermilion Energy (VET) is my Chart of the Day. I found the oil and gas exploration company by sorting Barchart’s Bullish Moving Averages list first by the highest Weighted Alpha, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the TrendSpotter signaled a buy on the stock gained 49.34%.
The Bullish Moving Averages list helps you find today’s best stocks with bullish short, medium, and long-term moving average patterns. These large-cap stocks (greater than 300M) have a 20-day moving average greater than the 50-day moving average, and a 50-day moving average greater than the 100-day moving average. When price is above a moving average, it signals an uptrend. In addition, these stocks have a TrendSpotter “Buy” signal, are within 20% of their 52-week high, and have a 20-day average volume greater than 25,000. These additional filters were added to showcase the best bullish moving average stocks.
TIP: Using FlipCharts, apply your own chart template with a 20, 50, and 100-day moving average to further analyze this group of stocks.

Analysts and Investor sentiment – I do not 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 3 strong buy, 4 buy, 7 hold and 1 sell recommendation on the stock
- The individual investors following the stock on Motley Fool voted 42 to 4 for the stock to beat the market with the more experienced investors voting 7 to 1 for the same result

This is the moment when anything having to do with Energy is shining. Domestic energy policy and the confusion over the international problems, plus the solid price momentum make this stock a great short term buy. Buy please keep tight stop losses in place for possible black swan events.
