Most Active Stocks Today
Stock Volume Definition: Stock volume refers to the number shares of a stock that are traded during a given period of time. For example, if Microsoft (MSFT) has a volume of 58 million shares for the day; it means that investors exchanged 58 million shares during the course of one trading day. Those stocks which registered the highest volume for a given period of time would be by definition considered the most active stocks. A list of the most active stocks (i.e. stocks with the highest trading volume) for a given period of time helps illustrate which companies investors are focusing on.

Most Active Stocks Today Table Description: The following table lists the 50 most active stocks today (available on major US stock exchanges). The table includes and can be sorted on: company ticker symbol, company name, activity rank (i.e. volume rank), volume (in millions of shares), and price as well as the stock's one-day, one-month, and 12-month percent change. For summary statistics of these 50 most active stocks today as well as how they compare to the Dow, simply scroll down to view the summary table. This table is updated every day after the close.
