The Cleveland, OH-based company is engaged in the development, manufacture, distribution and sale of paint, coatings and related products.
HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams announced Infinity today, a new line of interior and exterior paint that can be found exclusively at Lowe's (LOW) in March.
"INFINITY is 50% more scrubbable, washable and stain resistant than a leading competitive product, making it one of the most durable home products available," Andrew Kinnen, senior director of paint marketing for Sherwin-Williams' Diversified Brands Division, said in a statement.
We have seen some recent strength in home repair names, and last week's earnings from Home Depot (HD) confirmed the consumer is still alive and well. This chart of Sherwin-Williams is solid and shows some tremendous power. Institutional buyers have been all over this name of late and volume has been strong since the higher low made in January.
These last few days have been impressive, the price bars are incredibly strong and the pop over the 200-day moving average is like a hot knife through butter. We are seeing even more buying strength with the Moving Average Convergence Divergence buy signal, which was a precursor to the move up in February. At this point, this could be a pullback candidate.
