GLW Price

Corning's price per share closed at $39.34 yesterday. A year ago its price was $24.67. Price per share has positively recovered from the Covid recession, being 59.5% above last year's mark. 

If Corning Inc's stock trades in the range of $19 to $49 this next year, its recent $39.34 price might rise by $0.66 to reach $40.00 by March 2, 2022. That's in line with the median of thirteen GLW broker analyst projections.
