Usually we cover 52-week lows as many traders look for the bottom fishing opportunities in battered and tattered stocks.  But on big down days it is often important to look at which shares put in 52-WEEK HIGHS.  Some of these didn’t close above their prior yearly highs, but you get the idea.  Here is how crummy the market was today:

DJIA            13113.38     -249.97     -1.87%
NASDAQ    2565.7          -48.62       -1.86%
S&P500      1453.55       -25.00       -1.69%

The prevailing thought is that if stocks stay strong on a weak and crummy weak, imagine how well they’d do in an up-market.  With strong gold you’ll notice a few gold names on here.  Among others are a few tech names, and surprisingly a topless bar operator (not kidding). Here goes:
