What Is a Stock Market Report?

A stock market report summarizes the important information about a specific stock's activity during a day of trading, as reported by Investopedia. Typical information included in such a report includes daily high and low prices and the net change in value for the stock at close.

Stock market reports for specific stocks allow traders to quickly understand the trends in price over a day of trading for a specific stock. For example, a stock's net change allows a trader to assess the movement of the stock's price and how much value it has gained or lost relative to its initial trading price on that day. Most reports also indicate the total volume of trading and the high and low prices of the stock over the last 52 weeks of trading.
