Chart of Day: Intuit (INTU) – 2/11

It’s tax time.

As one of life’s two certainties, tax season can be the most, well… taxing.

These days, far too many of us are unwilling to do our own taxes, so we leave it up to trusted tax professionals. That way we don’t make mistakes with filing status, dependents, capital gains, or making dangerous assumptions. Many of us also forget human error can be costly. Even the smallest error can lead to expensive tax bills and a possible visit from the “friendly” IRS.

Aside from H&R Block (HRB), another great way to trade taxes is with Intuit (INTU) – whose TurboTax is popular with taxpayers. At $653 a share, it’s another one that typically runs around this time of the year. While it’s just a bit overbought at current prices, it’s still being bid higher on tax season.
