  • CNW has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $34.5 million.
  • CNW has traded 757,266 shares today.
  • CNW traded in a range 210.9% of the normal price range with a price range of $1.29.

Stocks matching the 'Water-Logged and Getting Wetter' criteria are worthwhile stocks to watch for a variety of factors including historical back testing and volatility.
