52-Week Low Club (AA, BT, CVC, CECO, CSCO, CLWR, CPWR, CSC, COCO, EBAY, ELOY, ENER, ESI, MOT)

These are not at all the only stocks we saw hitting 52-week lows.  These are the main names we follow that closed lower and that challenged their 52-week lows:

  • ALCOA (AA) opened at new 52-week lows but managed to close above the low; down almost 1% today.
  • BT Group (PLC) down almost 8% after U.K. markets were open yesterday and we weren’t.
  • Boeing (BA) opened at new 52-week lows but managed to close above the low; still -1% today.
  • Cablevision (CVC)… I bet Mr. Gabelli wants that old Dolan buyout offer now.
  • Career Education (CECO) down 14% after Sallie Mae terminated its loan program, ouch.
  • Cisco Systems (CSCO) down 3.6% more… so much for enterprise tech spending?
  • Clearwire (CLWR) down almost 8% to $11.48…post-IPO lows.
  • Compuware (CPWR) down 4% to $6.38, after only announcing its earnings date.
  • Computer Science Corp. (CSC) closed barely under the $38.65 prior low at $38.61.
  • Corinthian Colleges (COCO) fell 30% after Sallie Mae terminated its loan program.
  • eBay (EBAY) on Meg Whitman leaving; earnings tomorrow.
  • eLoyalty (ELOY) down 8% to $9.02; prior low $9.48.
  • Energy Conversion Devices (ENER) down 6% and barely managed to close above 52-week lows on a weak alternative energy sector.

….And that is just through the majors starting with “E”.

  • ITT Education Serivces (ESI) down 15% after Sallie Mae terminated loan programs.
  • Motorola (MOT) still losing ground despite Icahn’s efforts…. guess who is a huge Sprint Nextel wireless phone supplier?
