Someone bearish on the stock might see it reaching its lowest price in a year as a sign of growing downward momentum and make sure they sell their shares. Bulls, though, are more likely to see a new 52-week low as the stock hitting its low point and anticipate a bounce in the share price.

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