Apple breaks $182: Looks who’s underwater now

Monday’s $181.72 close was Apple’s highest ever—and its second all-time high in as many trading days.

Here’s my analyst price-target spreadsheet, as accurate and up-to-date as I can make it. Corrections appreciated.

My take: I still don’t understand how a sell-side analyst can advise customers to buy a stock today that he believes will be cheaper 12 months from now. I’m looking at you, Jun Zhang.

    The manner that I track 40 analyst price targets indicates:

    10 with a $168 consensus with a standard deviation range of $159 – $176 (these could be buy side [4] or slow to upgrade [6]).

    14 with a $189 consensus with a standard deviation range of $183 – $194 (I believe these are July targets).

    16 with a $207 consensus with a standard deviation range of $196 – $217 (I believe these are October targets).

    Analyst price targets are an anachronism, literally out-of-date, by the next news cycle.
