Stocks Trading Near 52-Week Highs and Lows

Momentum trading strategies often involve the buying of stocks that are trading near their 52-week high in the expectation that the stock will continue to reach new highs. See study "52-Week High and Momentum Investing" cited below for evidence on the effectiveness of this trading strategy.

Contrarian trading strategies, on the other hand, can involve buying stocks near 52-week lows in anticipation that a bottom may be near, but this strategy can be quite risky, as such stocks tend to be highly volatile in either direction.

Short selling stocks near 52-week lows may be quite profitable, but is also dangerous, as stocks will frequently bounce higher after hitting 52-week lows, even if they are headed far lower in the longer term.

Notes:

Stocks are deemed to be near their 52-week high (low) if they are within 3 percent of the high (low) or they achieved a new high (low) within the 5 most recent market days.

Price relative to 52-week range is calculated as [log(price)-log(low price)]/[log(high price)-log(low price)]*100%. Thus a stock with a current price of $4 with a 52-week high of $8 and a 52-week low of $2 will have price relative to range of 50%.
