The 52-Week High/Low: A Comprehensive Guide

A stock passes through various prices in its lifetime. The valuation of a current price of the stock is generally done by investors based on its price movement in the last year or 52 weeks period. The movement in stock during its last 52 weeks helps in predicting the future movement of the stock price.

What is 52 Week's High and Low?

The 52-week high is the price of a stock when it touches its highest price within the period of the past 52 weeks. Similarly, 52 weeks low is the lowest price of a stock during the past 52 weeks. The volume activity in any stock increases when the stock touches a new 52-week high or low.

Things Investors Do When Stock Hits 52 High or Low

Each investor has its style of investing. However, if you are a value investor and see the stock at its 52-week low price, it might be a buying opportunity. Since the stock is at a low price, a value investor will feel there is room for the stock to grow. On the other hand, a momentum investor will pick a stock at 52 weeks high for investment. This strategy is known “relative strength strategy” suggesting that stock at a high will touch a new high while stock at a yearly low price will hit now low price. Value investors do not monitor the market regularly while momentum investors are always active in the stock market.
