The Chart of the Day is Equity Lifestyle Properties (NYSE:ELS). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High List for new high frequency in the last month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy in 4/4 the stock gained 4.69%.

Equity Lifestyle Properties, Inc. is a self-administered, self-managed, real estate investment trust.
