Equities Staff |

Intevac Inc. (IVAC) established a new 52-week low yesterday, and could be a company to watch at the open. After opening at $4.35, Intevac Inc. dropped to $4.12 for a new 52-week low. By the closing bell, the company's stock was at $4.19 a share for a loss of 4.99%.

Falling to a new 52-week low is never fun for company's shareholder, but, depending on who you ask, it can be either a buy or a sell signal. 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.

Intevac Inc. saw 67,971 shares of its stock trade hands, that's out of 21.85 million shares outstand. The stock has an average daily volume of 27,199 shares. After hitting a new 52-week low, Intevac Inc. enters the new trading day with a market cap of 91.55 million, a 50-day SMA of $4.73 and a 200-day SMA of $5.06
