Chivas's idea: SHW out of flat base

NYSE:SHW   SHERWIN WILLIAMS CO
31 0 2
Chivas likes the low volatility and flat shallow base of SHW             for his weekly pick. SHW             has good rel             strength, has a nice trend going, but there are a few drawbacks as I see it:

1. Lacking vol             on breakout
2. Red vol             comes in Thursday, 4/16.
3. Not in a good group rank. 77/197
4. Acc/Dis is D+.

I see these as enough to rule this stock out.
