Stocks at new 52wk high for first time in 26

How would I modify the following scan [or build a new one] to find names at new 52 week
highs for the first time in 26 weeks?

[type = stock] AND [Daily SMA(20,Daily Volume) > 40000] AND [Daily High >
Yesterday's Daily MAX(253,Daily High)]

Thank you

    If my understanding is correct.

    You've got the first part, just add the second to ensure the new high did not happen in the last 26 weeks, (approx 126 days).

    [type = stock]
    AND [Daily SMA(20,Daily Volume) > 40000]
    AND [ High > 1 day ago MAX(253, High)]

    and [ 1 day ago Max (126, high) < 126 days ago Max (126, high)]

    Of course if you are talking about rolling backwards 52 week high, then that would be a different scan covering a greater time period.
