Welcome back to the 52-week Series – A recap of ASX 200 stocks that have tagged a fresh yearly highs and lows in the past week.

This is a particularly interesting week to check up on the ASX’s biggest winners and sinners given the modest recovery experienced at index level. Which stocks took that positive lead and ran with it, and which are so clearly unwanted by investors they were terrible enough to trade at their yearly, or even all-time lows?


 Why do 52-Week Highs and Lows Matter?

Here are some of the key points from our first 52-Week article:

  • A research thesis by Thomas J. George and Chuan-Yang Hwang titled The 52-Week High and Momentum Investing concludes that stocks nearing their 52-week high tend to outperform in the future, surpassing the predictive power of past returns.

  • US trader Mark Minervini also notes that “when you see a growing number of names in a particular industry making new 52-week highs (especially coming off a market low), this could be an indication that a group advance is underway.”

  • 1851 Capital Chief Investment Officer Chris Stott says the numbers are useful in helping to determine which stocks have the momentum to keep making fresh highs. The data is used to identify continuous winners and generate fresh ideas.


Winners are grinners

Winners’ Table: Everything is sweet at the top!

As a trend following technical analyst, this list is just heaven for me! These are the stocks most sought after by the demand-side, and at the same time, most tightly held by the supply-side.

I have little interest in why each side feels the way they do – I assume both sides have good reasons for their actions. Regardless, who am I to argue with the market!?

There are so many wonderful charts here, but I’m going to give a special mention to Life360 (ASX: 360), Bannerman Resources (ASX: BMN), Macro Metals (ASX: M4M), Mayne Pharma Group (ASX: MYX), RPMGlobal Holdings (ASX: RUL), and Sandfire Resources (ASX: SFR).

Sinners are, um, cooked like chicken dinners!?

Now for the Sinners’ Table. Note here, ‘Y’ in the ‘ATL’ column denotes an all-time low as well as a 52 week low .

Sinners’ Table: Is it a case of unfair treatment, or are these stocks getting exactly what they deserve?

No special mentions here – there are some horrific trends. I do note some massive names, though: Corporate Travel Management (ASX: CTD), Nine Entertainment (ASX: NEC), Tesltra (ASX: TLS), The Reject Shop (ASX: TRS), Woodside Energy (ASX: WDS), and Woolworths Group (ASX: WOW).

Why are these stocks so shunned by both the demand and supply-sides? I don’t know, you’ll have to ask every single person who owns cash or shares in the above mentioned companies (i.e., the market).

Given this is practically impossible, then perhaps it’s best to just assume the market knows something we don’t!
