The most active stocks are the ones that trade the highest volume of shares over a certain time interval. The volumes show higher trade, which in turn shows how liquid the stock is.
An active stock trades at a higher volume than average, and this pattern changes based on a number of factors, including price, business results, and any recent or timely trends that spark interest in the firm or its goods and services.
