Stocks at New Highs, New Lows for 12/14

Here’s one stock hitting a 52-week high and one finding a 52-week low today:

New High: TiVo

Shares of TiVo (NASDAQ:TIVO[1]) have climbed almost 2% this morning, sending shares to a 52-week high just under $13. Since a low in mid-July, the stock has climbed more than 60%. It’s up 40% year-to-date.

The jump today came as Goldman Sachs analyst Perry Huang issued a “Buy” rating for the company with a $15 price target. He wrote, “We view TiVo as a leading vendor well positioned to target consumers who desire a premium viewing experience in the digital living room and on mobile devices.”

Of course, the stock has still lost more than 65% since going public in 1999. In fact, today’s high is less than a quarter of the company’s share price in early 2000.

TIVO, which last reported in late November, reports earnings again in February.

New Low: MICROS Systems

Enterprise information solutions company MICROS Systems (NASDAQ:MCRS[2]) is in the red more than 2% this morning, bringing its year-to-date losses to over 14% and sending shares to a 52-week low just under $40. That’s also more than 30% off from the stock’s high in early May.

The drop came despite analyst views that emerging Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL[3]) iPad-based point of sale systems do not pose a significant threat to the company in the restaurant segment.

In late October, the company also beat analyst estimates by 4 cents.

As of this writing, Alyssa Oursler did not own a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
