For traders with a more short-term time horizon, we have compiled a list of the S&P 1500 stocks that have the largest intraday high-low ranges (based on the average percent spread between the intraday high and low over the last fifty days). We then grouped the stocks based on whether they have a rising or falling 50-day moving average. Stocks highlighted in gray are new to the list this month.
As has been the case in recent months, most of the stocks highlighted below trade for under $10 $5 per share and come from the Financial and Consumer Discretionary sectors. In fact, the only stock on the list that is currently trading above $10 per share is Clearwater Paper Company (CLW) which produces pulp and paperboard. However, at a current price of $10.70, it may not remain above $10 for long.
