NEW YORK ( Stockpickr) -- At Stockpickr, we track daily portfolios of stocks that are hitting new 52-week highs and 52-week lows.

It often follows that a stock setting a new 52-week high will continue to set higher and higher highs (and the opposite for a stock setting a new 52-week low), and momentum traders often look to the 52-week-high lists for new stock ideas. Keep in mind, though, that new high prices can also indicate reasons for concern or caution in a stock.
