February 2, 2017 Staff

Investors and traders can learn a lot about a stock’s momentum when it sets a new 52-week high. As an example, bullish investors view a company hitting its highest price in a year as a sign of momentum and may interpret it as a signal to buy. On the other hand, bearish investors could view a new 52-week high as a signal of the end of a strong run, with the stock possibly peaking out before an impending period of decline.

For Blue Bird Corporation, the new 52-week high came on volume of 58,551. The stock has a float of 22.61 million shares and average daily volume of $49,491. It has a 50-day SMA of $16.32 and a 200-day SMA of $13.87.
