Callon Petroleum (CPE) Hits New 52-week Low During December 09 Session

Callon Petroleum (CPE) established a new 52-week low yesterday, and could be a company to watch at the open. After opening at $4.14, Callon Petroleum dropped to $4.09 for a new 52-week low. By the closing bell, the company's stock was at $4.59 a share for a gain of 10.87%.

Falling to a new 52-week low is never fun for company's shareholder, but, depending on who you ask, it can be either a buy or a sell signal. Someone bearish on the stock might see it reaching its lowest price in a year as a sign of growing downward momentum and make sure they sell their shares. Bulls, though, are more likely to see a new 52-week low as the stock hitting its low point and anticipate a bounce in the share price.

However one plays it, it's often a critical moment for any stock and should be noted by investors.
