The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is having a decent, if bumpy, day of trading so far this Thursday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 has gained 0.15% to back over 7,345 points.
However, the ASX 200 has also spent considerable time in red territory today after falling sharply after the market open this morning. But we have still seen a plethora of ASX 200 shares hit new 52-week highs this session. Let’s discuss them.
7 ASX 200 shares at new 52-week highs today
Aristocrat Leisure Limited (ASX: ALL)
It was only on Tuesday that we reported Artistocrat’s latest 52-week high. But here we are again, with another fresh high for this ASX 200 gaming share. Aristocrat stock is currently up 0.75% to $41.60 a share. But the company hit its new high of $41.70 earlier this morning. This rise puts Aristocrat’s 2023 gains at an encouraging 35.8%.
Boral Limited (ASX: BLD)
Boral shares are on fire today. This building and construction materials company has gained a whopping 8.3% so far today and is sitting at $4.74, putting Boral at a year-to-date gain of 64.8%. Earlier this morning, Boral stock hit its now-current two-week high of $4.75. Investors clearly have this company’s latest (and evidently well-received) earnings report to thank for this new high watermark.
Reece Ltd (ASX: REH)
ASX 200 plumbing supplies share Reee is another stock that has seen several new 52-week highs in recent weeks. Today brings another one. Right now, Reece shares are going for $20.20, up 0.52% for the day. This morning though, we saw the company top out at $20.28 a share, another new 52-week high. Today’s gains put Reece shares up 46.3% this year so far.
Breville Group Ltd (ASX: BRG)
Breville is another ASX 200 share that just keeps the wins coming. Today, the company has hit another 52-week high, this time $23.92 a share. Breville remains just a little below that at present, up 0.97% for the day at $23.91. This adds to Breville’s already-impressive winning streak in 2023, which now stands at 28%.
Orora Ltd (ASX: ORA)
The same can be said for packaging company Orora. Today, Orora shares hit a new annual high watermark of $3.67 a share just after market open. That extends this company’s year-to-date winning streak to 28.5%. Right now, Orora shares are just below that new high, trading at $3.64 a share, up 0.41% for this session.
Costa Group Holdings Ltd (ASX: CGC)
ASX 200 produce share Costa Group is next up. Costa shares had a dreary start to the day, but spiked after lunchtime to record a new 52-week high of $3.39 a share. This new high is probably related to Costa’s impending takeover. At present, the company has retreated from that high and is flat at $3.38. Still, investors will be happy with Costa’s 23.2% rise in 2203 so far.
News Corporation (ASX: NWS)
News Corp is our final ASX 200 share to check out today. This media conglomerate has also had a bumpy day and is slightly up at $31.79 a share at the time of writing. Still, News Corp’s new 52-week high of $31.85 that we saw this afternoon still counts. News Corp shares are now up 17.6% year to date in 2023 thus far.
