Equities Staff |

Fair Isaac Corp (FICO) hit a new 52-week high yesterday, reaching a peak of $98.96 after opening at $87.56 and closing at $95.56 for a move of 16.05%.

Hitting a new 52-week high is a notable milestone for any company, and it can mean a trading opportunity on either the long or short side, depending on one's perspective. Some view a company hitting its highest price in a year as a sign of momentum and think it means it's time to buy in. Others, though, tend to interpret a new 52-week high as likely signaling the end of a strong run, with the stock peaking out before a period of decline.

However one plays it, it’s often a critical moment for any stock and should be noted by investors.

The new 52-week high came on a volume of 647,347 for a stock that has a float of 31.08 million shares and an average daily volume of $197,448. The day's trading means the company's market cap is now at $2.97 billion and it has a 50-day SMA of $90.46 and a 200-day SMA of $89.17.

Fair Isaac Corp now has a P/E ratio of 31.7.
