The Chart of the Day is Sunoco Logistics Partners LP (NYSE:SXL). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List for frequency in the last month, skipped the stocks that did not have positive gains for the last week and month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/19 the stock gained 13.87%.
