  • Western Gas Partners - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Apr 3, 2014 4:24 PM | about stocks: WES

    The Chart of the Day is Western Gas Partners (NYSE:WES). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for new high frequency in last month and then used the Flipchart feature to find the chart I liked. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a high on 2/7 the stock gained 12.17%.

    WES is a growth-oriented Delaware limited partnership formed by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation to own, operate, acquire and develop midstream energy assets.
