Ares Capital Corp (ARCC) has a beautiful chart and this week's price action suggests this trend should continue. After consolidating sideways, the chart continued its upward ascent out of the trading range.
The MACD had pulled back to the centre line and turned back up today. One thing to notice is the dividend yield is a healthy 8.65 %. Focusing in on strong stocks with a large dividend makes this a nice find.
