Apple breaks $135, leaves analysts behind

Look whose 12-month price targets are underwater now.

If a sell-side analyst really believes Apple’s share price is going to be lower in a year than it is today, why is he or she telling clients to buy?

Price targets as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Corrections appreciated. Click to enlarge.

    Why indeed?

    There are three rules to successful investing…

    …unfortunately, no one knows what they are.

      John:

      I believe you already know the three rules to successful investing:

      1. Buy low.
      2. Sell high.
      3. Think different.

    Having watched the average analysts target price vs. AAPL as quoted daily on Yahoo finance, for several years, two observations:
    1) Average analysts AAPL targets tend to follow the market up or down.
    2) AAPL tends to trade at 10% to 25% discount to targets (exception is when the price moves very fast, like it is now.)
