Apple at $177.09. Look who’s underwater now.

And then there were four: Nomura, Barclays, Mizuho and Deutsche Bank.

Apple has been on a tear for more than a year. The pool of analysts advising investors to stay clear of Apple is shrinking. Some have left the business. See Apple analysts play musical chairs on Wall Street.

Below: My full list of Apple price targets, as accurate and up-to-date* as I can make it. Corrections appreciated.

      Look up Brian White and 235 and you’ll get a Barron’s article from early Nov. Brian has been setting the highest Apple targets for a while. At least way back to when he set the $888 target pre-split.

  2. Newbie poster, but not a newbie Apple Long. Take a look at the names of the Market Manipulating Perma-Bears. If you followed the advice of Mark Moskowitz and Sherri Scribner over recent years, you would have missed out on signifigant Apple appreciation and the price appreciation coming, will dwarf the returns over the last few years.

    Mark Moskowitz downgraded Apple in January, 2017 from 119 to 117, several days prior to the the release of Apple’s 1st quarter 2017 earnings report.

    That move alone invalidates anything else that he has to say.

    I’ve long noticed that analysts follow (in a strange way ) the market for AAPL up or down, keeping about a 10% gap. When AAPL falls, the gaps widens even as analysts lower their targets. When rising the gap narrows. Now it’s less than 10%.

    To Joseph’s question about the market. The market has finally learned arithmetic. The stock is undervalued, hence low risk, with excellent dividend growth and good stock appreciation. The tax changes strengthen the numbers. As for AMZN, it’s about ‘story’ not arithmetic.

    BTW, here is something, I think only a few people understand: I´ve read a lot about the iPhone X being less popular than the iPhone 8 (I liked the X but I send it back and purchased an iPhon 8 because of its form-factor) and that this would be bad for Apple.
    But what a lot of people didn’t understand is, that even if Apple would sell only iPhone 8, it would make tons of money….and if only a small proportion of its customers choose the X, they will make an extra-ton of money.
    No one at Apple ever thought of the X completely replacing the 8, it is only a nice add-on, in terms of functions and price, and I think that it will bring us a big surprise on February the 1.

      I believe the appropriate technical term is “would make metric crap-tons of money.” It should be very interesting to add up the 8 & X numbers and compare those total sales (and of course ASP and margin) to previous iPhone releases.
