Mar 20, 2017

Mar 20, 2017 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX News Network) -- Shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have bullishly opened above the pivot of $140.29 today and have reached the first resistance level of $140.70. Investors may be interested in a cross of the next upside pivot targets of $141.40 and $142.51.

Potential upside of 3.4% exists for Apple, based on a current level of $140.45 and analysts' average consensus price target of $145.29. The stock should find initial support at its 200-day moving average (MA) of $108.75 and further support at its 50-day MA of $104.04.
