The High and Low of a stock are data points listed in the summary statistics for every stock profile. High & Low statistics are commonly shown on a daily and 52 weeks basis.
During regular market hours, the High is the highest price a stock reached while the Low is the lowest price a stock reached. These stats give you a range of the stock’s movement in one trading day.
If you are wondering what the range of the stock’s price has been over the past year, the 52 Week High & Low give you just that. Comparing these statistics to the current price of a stock is a simple way to determine if the stock price is on the high or low end of the stock’s historical range.
