New Highs

New Highs List

Stocks that are making new highs are making those new highs for a reason.  A stock breaks through various levels of resistance because buyers believe the stock is cheap at current prices.  They would not think that unless the company has created an exciting new product, has made a discovery, has developed a cure, has greater profit than previously anticipated, or is expected to make a lot of money relatively soon.  New highs are driven by enthusiasm about a company’s prospects.  We have chosen to focus on new 6-month highs, because a stock that was higher one or more years ago is still of interest if it has not been this high for at least 6 months.  Also, stocks making 1-year highs or all-time highs will be making new 6-month highs.  This approach gives us a wider selection from which to choose.  

Here is a list of stocks that have made new 6-month closing highs, ranked by the percentage change over the latest week. Columns include the average dollar amount traded per day and the closing price.  Based on closing data as of Friday, and updated weekly.   We list up to 100 stocks, usually on Sunday.
