By now, most investors would be aware of the awful end to the trading week that ASX 200 shares are suffering through this Friday. At the time of writing, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has plunged by a depressing 2.3% to back down around 6,550 points.

These falls have predictably bought some new share price lows to the ASX today. So let’s take a look at three ASX 200 shares that have just unlocked some new low points for their share prices.

3 ASX 200 shares hitting new lows today

Sonic Healthcare Limited (ASX: SHL)

Sonic is our first ASX 200 share worth a look at today. This ASX 200 healthcare share has taken a beating today. At present, Sonic shares are down a nasty 2.4% this session to $29.60 each. But earlier today, Sonic sank as low as $29.43. That’s a new 52-week low for the company.

It’s also the lowest Sonic shares have been since the dark days of the 2020 COVID crash. Sonic healthcare shares are now down 35.85% year to date.

Lottery Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLC)

Lottery Corp shares have only been on the ASX 200 in their own right for a few months. The company was spun out of Tabcorp Holdings Limited (ASX: TAH) back in May. But it’s been a baptism by fire for this gaming share. Since its ASX debut, Lottery Corp shares have fallen by close to 11%.

Today, the company has taken a depressing 3.8% hit, which puts it down to the present price of $4.18. This morning saw the company descend to just $4.11 per share, which is Lottery Corp’s new 52-week low.

TPG Telecom Ltd (ASX: TPG)

Our final ASX 200 share to check out today is telecom company TPG. TPG shares are down 2.31% so far this Friday, putting the telco at $4.86 a share. That’s just a whisker off of the low of $4.85 that TPG saw this morning. That’s also the new 52-week low for the company.

It’s been a brutal month or so for TPG, which has seen its share price decline by more than 27% since 17 August. The company is now down by 17.7% year to date in 2022 thus far.
