NiSource (NI) : "There's a stock I want to own. Great management and a good dividend," said Jim Cramer to a caller during Wednesday's "Lightning Round" segment of Mad Money.
Let's check out the charts of this utility company.
In this daily bar chart of NI, below, we can see that prices have slowly and quietly corrected since early May. NI is trading below the declining 50-day moving average line and currently testing the 200-day line.
Trading volume has been on the light side and the On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line shows a slight decline from late August. Sellers of NI are not being very aggressive and that is a plus in my opinion.
