Yes, there have been headlines recently about a big AAPL stock selloff. There has also been noise about an analyst who has once again cut his AAPL stock price target.
Despite these doom and gloom headlines, I think Apple is far from being in decline. Many investment analysts are taking a wait and see approach on Apple stock at the moment, but the majority still have Apple stock rated as a buy. Among those tracked by CNN Money, the median 12-month price target of $133 (that’s 11.2% upside) reflects the confidence that AAPL stock is going to recover from its current dip — and continue back into growth territory.
