Hitting a new 52-week high is a notable milestone for any company, and it can mean a trading opportunity on either the long or short side, depending on one's perspective. Some view a company hitting its highest price in a year as a sign of momentum and think it means it's time to buy in. Others, though, tend to interpret a new 52-week high as likely signalling the end of a strong run, with the stock peaking out before a period of decline.
However one plays it, it’s often a critical moment for any stock and should be noted by investors.
