The Brinks Company (BCO) hit a new 52-week high yesterday, reaching a peak of $34.94 after opening at $34.62 and closing at $34.92 for a move of 0.58%.

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 397,468 for a stock that has a float of 48.97 million shares and an average daily volume of $246,148. The day's trading means the company's market cap is now at $1.71 billion and it has a 50-day SMA of $31.07 and a 200-day SMA of $29.66.
