High and Low

The Price range of the stock within a 52 week time period. 52 week high is the highest price the stock has registered within the indicated time frame. 52 week low is the lowest price the stock has been traded within a year. This is useful when determining where the stock has been in the past to better scale the direction of the company. Although this metric should not be used to predict future price movement. One hint on this metric is that when the price just plays around a certain range there should be indications that the underlying company's financials are not stellar or the company has reached a size where further growth cannot be sustained any longer. However, 52 week high and low can be used as a tool to time entry or exit points on a trade with the supplement of company financial datas.
