52-Week Low Club (CCJ, CVI, EIX, MDR, SSRI, ZINC)

52_week_low_imageThe drop in commodities isn’t good for everyone apparently.  Many metals stocks are on the list today, as are others. Here is a partial list of some semi-active stocks hitting 52-week lows today:

  • Cameco (NYSE: CCJ) continued uranium weakness after its Cigar Lake troubles persist… and persist… and persist…
  • CVR Energy (NYSE: CVI)… energy and fertilizer, recent IPO, so long for the fun times; becoming one of the worse performing post-IPO’s over the last year.

  • Edison International (NYSE: EIX)… becoming habitual to see power generation companies
  • McDermott (NYSE: MDR) after naming new CEO; stock back above lows but hit new 52-week lows this morning.
  • Silver Standard Resources Inc. (NASDAQ: SSRI), one of the many speculative metals plays on the list
  • Horsehead Holdings (NASDAQ: ZINC), again… it’s hard not to give this one at least two nicknames.
