On September 08, 2021 "Robert W. Baird" gave "$160.00 - $170.00" rating for AAPL. The price target was set to $156.69+1.5%.
Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 16.16% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $173.04 and $183.22 at the end of this 3-month period.
Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 months Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Apple stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $153.61 and $149.03. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday, September 07, 2021, and so far it has fallen -4.93%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
Apple finds support from accumulated volume at $145.86 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
