NEW All-Time Highs and Lows

The screen shows some of the companies that reached a NEW historical HIGH (or LOW) and some key information about them (Industry, Market Capitalization and Annual Dividend Yield).

If a company is at an all-time high, it means that it has currently reached a value that it had never been able to achieve before, so it is a clear sign of the company’s strength.

On the other hand, a company that sets a record low means that it never reached such a low value, a clear sign of weakness.
