November 21st New 52 Week Highs & Lows

Here is a screen I like to run to give me a feel of where the market overall is.

The parameters of the screen are: Stock Price: over $10, Market Cap: over $300mm, Optionable: Yes, Average Volume: Over 500K

Why must the stock have options traded on it? Firstly because this is an options website, Secondly because I feel you can manage a position better with the ability to buy puts or sell calls to enhance my return.

For November 21st : 31 stocks were hitting a new 52 week high and 10 stocks hit a new 52 week low.

There is a theory of watching new highs versus new lows to determine if the market is getting overbought or over sold, we can get into that another time.

52 Week Highs & Lows May 2nd 2011

Here is a screen I like to run to give me a feel of where the market overall is.

The parameters of the screen are: Stock Price: over $10, Market Cap: over $300mm, Optionable: Yes, Average Volume: Over 500K

Why must the stock have options traded on it? Firstly because this is an options website, Secondly because I feel you can manage a position better with the ability to buy puts or sell calls to enhance my return.

For May 2nd, 94 stocks were hitting a new 52 week high and only one was hitting a new low (Frontline, Ticker FRO). This is a pretty high level day. There is a theory of watching new highs versus new lows to determine if the market is getting overbought or over sold, we can get into that another time.

Here is the list for May 2nd 2011
