The number of stocks that exceed the highest price reached by each stock during the most recent 52-week period. Technicians consider an increasing number of highs to be a bullish sign, especially if accompanied by other favorable indicators. Conversely, record high market averages not accompanied by an increasing number of individual highs would be suspect. Also called new highs. Compare lows.
