No, but it's a fairly simple calculation, just subtract 1 day from the first
of the next month and make sure to deal with December dates:

gen newdate=mdy( month(date)+1,1,year(date))-1 replace
newdate=mdy(12,31,year(date)) if month(date)==12

It could be done in a single line by combining these using cond()
