52-week Low

The HTML to link to this page

The 52-week low is the lowest price that a stock has reached in the past 52 weeks. This 52-week low is the lowest price at which investors were willing to sell the stock over the past one year of trading. Stock investors note the 52-week low to give an idea of the longer term stock performance. The 52-week low may also be a sign of the longer term price support level of the stock. If the share price is near or reached a new 52-week low, it could be a turning point to either trade higher or to break down to a new lower level. Also, the 52-week low offers a good indication of the individual stock performance compared to the overall trading of the broader stock market. If a stock is near its 52-week low and the general stock market index is not at or near its own 52-week low, that stock is said to be under-performing the market. Investors also note how many stocks are reaching their 52-week low as an indication of market trend.
