Overall, it's been a rather happy day for ASX shares so far this Thursday. At the time of writing, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is gaining a robust 0.4% and is back over 6,640 points.

But that goodwill hasn't extended to all ASX shares. In fact, there are now three ASX 200 shares that have already hit new 52-week lows today. Let's check them out.

3 ASX 200 shares hitting new 52-week lows today

Sandfire Resources Ltd (ASX: SFR)

Our first ASX 200 share to check out is copper miner Sandfire Resources. Sandfire shares are down 0.77% at the time of writing to $3.86 a share. But earlier today, this miner dropped as low as $3.79. That's this company's new 52-week low.

Sandfire shares are now down 43% in 2022 so far. This appears to be the result of copper prices sinking to near-two-year lows in recent weeks, which is obviously bad news for Sandfire.

Pendal Group Ltd (ASX: PDL)

Our next share worth taking a look at is Pendal Group. This fund manager has had a wild few months. It was over $5 a share at the start of June but has since dipped to the new 52-week low of $4 that we saw earlier this morning. This is all despite the absence of any major news or developments out of the company for some time.

Pendal even impressed investors when its interim results were released back in May, which saw the company post a 59% surge in underlying profits. So clearly investors have deduced that things are less rosy for Pendal today. At the time of writing, the Pendal share price is down 2.27% at $4.10.

Bega Cheese Ltd (ASX: BGA)

Our third ASX 200 share today is none other than Bega Cheese. This consumer staples company has had a clanger today, with the Bega Cheese share price down a nasty 7.61% at the time of writing at $3.28 a share.

Earlier this morning, Bega dipped as low as $3.20, which is now the company's new 52-week low. In this case, it seems the trading update the company released this morning is responsible for this latest low.

As we covered at the time, Bega announced that its farm gate milk prices in Victoria have jumped 30% over FY 2022's prices, which is more than the rise of 15-20% that it previously expected. Investors obviously haven't taken kindly to this news, and have evidently punished Bega shares accordingly.
