    The "Chart of the Day" is Western Gas Partners (WES), which showed up on Monday's Barchart "NYSE 3-Month High" list. WES on Monday rallied by 1.00% and edged to a new 4-month high of $36.46. A rally above the all-time high of $37.05 posted on April 29, 2011 would be a particularly bullish technical signal. TrendSpotter issued a Buy signal for WES on Sep 1 at $36.41. In recent news on the stock, Western Gas Partners on July 5 increased its quarterly dividend to 40.5 cents per unit, a 4% increase over the prior quarter's distribution of 39 cents per unit. Western Gas Partners on Aug 3 reported Q2 EPS of 39 cents, which was below the consensus of 44 cents but included the effects of a $1.9 million realized loss on an interest rate hedge. Western Gas Partners, with a market cap of $2.1 billion, is a growth-oriented Delaware limited partnership formed by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation to own, operate, acquire and develop midstream energy assets.
