Evercore ISI Group is very positive about AAPL and gave it a "$185.00 - $190.00" rating on Sep 20, 2022. The price target was changed from 185 to 190.Over the last 90 days, this security got 7 buy, 7 sell, and 0 hold ratings.

The stock lies in the lower part of a wide and weak rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $147.15 is broken, it will firstly indicate a slower rate of rising, but may also be an early warning for a trend shift.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 6.28% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $156.40 and $190.70 at the end of this 3-month period.

Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month 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. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $152.31 and $160.63. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, and so far it has fallen -14.16%. 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 $148.47 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
