NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Targa Resources Partners (NYSE: NGLS) hit a new 52-week high Thursday as it is currently trading at $39.95, above its previous 52-week high of $39.85 with 58,187 shares traded as of 10:30 a.m. ET. Average volume has been 327,600 shares over the past 30 days.

Targa Resources Partners LP provides midstream natural gas and natural gas liquid (NGL) services in the United States. The company operates through two divisions, Natural Gas Gathering and Processing; and NGL Logistics and Marketing. The company has a P/E ratio of 23.9, equal to the average energy industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Targa as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated. You can view the full Targa Ratings Report.
