    technical indicators and price/book

    According to Yahoo Finance, UGP had some nice technical indicators at last check (8/22). For 4 of the last 5 trading days, including 8/22 and 8/21, UGP's price rose noticeably in the last 30 minutes or so of trading. The other day it was flat in the last 30 minutes. UGP also showed at least 3 rising bottoms in the chart since 7/19/06, maybe 4. The fourth would be the bottom on about 8/10, which interrupted briefly a rise ffrom under $15 per share to over $17,25 per share.

    As for price/book value ratios, I couldn't find any for UGP's industry. But I compared UGP with two other speciality chemical firms, GGC and ALB. UGP had the best ratio (1.52 versus 2.04 and 2.42). Happy investing!

The other year it was down, but only 9 cents or 0.58% (less than one percent).
