It has been a great day for investors on Thursday, with lower US interest rate expectations putting a rocket under many ASX 200 shares.

In fact, some ASX 200 shares have climbed so much today that they have reached new 52-week highs.

Here are eight that accomplished this feat on Thursday:

Altium Limited (ASX: ALU)

The Altium share price has hit a 52-week high of $39.96 on Thursday thanks to a rebounding tech sector.

Auckland International Airport Limited (ASX: AIA)

The Auckland International Airport share price has risen to a 52-week high of $7.90 this afternoon. Investors appear optimistic that this airport operator will be benefitting greatly from the travel market recovery.

CSL Limited (ASX: CSL)

The CSL share price has continued its positive run and climbed to a 52-week high of $304.75. Morgans is tipping 2023 to be a "break-out" year for the biotherapeutics giant.

Lottery Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLC)

The Lottery Corporation share price has hit a 52-week (and record) high of $4.91 on Thursday. Last week, Macquarie reiterated its outperform rating with an improved price target of $5.10.

Northern Star Resources Ltd (ASX: NST)

The Northern Star share price has hit a 52-week high of $13.31. As you can see below, this means the ASX 200 gold miner's shares are now up 52% over the last 12 months.

Pro Medicus Limited (ASX: PME)

The Pro Medicus share price is on form again and charged to a 52-week (and record) high of $67.99. A rebounding tech sector and some big contract wins have sent this ASX 200 healthcare technology company's shares hurtling higher.

Telstra Group Ltd (ASX: TLS)

The Telstra share price has risen to a 52-week high of $4.18. Earlier this week, Goldman Sachs upgraded the telco giant's shares to a buy rating with a $4.60 price target.

WiseTech Global Ltd (ASX: WTC)

The WiseTech share price has stormed to a 52-week (and record) high of $64.70 this afternoon. This brings the ASX 200 tech share's 12-month return to a sizeable 40%.
