Apple stock price target was lifted by Wedbush to highest on the StreetApple Inc.'s stock price target was raised by Wedbush's Dan Ives, enough to separate him as the most bullish Wall Street analyst. Ives raised his base-case price target on the technology behemoth's stock to $160 from $150, while reiterating the outperform rating he's had on Apple for at least since October 2018, given his increased confidence in the "Apple supercycle" thesis. Ives also boosted his "bull-case" price target to $200 from $175. Meanwhile, Apple's stock slipped 0.1% in premarket trading Wednesday, to pullback from Tuesday's 2-month closing high. "Our recent Asia checks continue to be bullish around iPhone 12 demand both domestically and in China," Ives wrote in a note to clients. "In the U.S. we are seeing 'a clear tick up' for demand around the iPhone 12 Pro versions with the 6.1-inch model the star of the show so far with carrier trade-ins/promotions catalyzing upgrades into the holidays." Of the 40 analysts surveyed by FactSet, Ives's previous base-case target was tied with two others as the highest on the Street; his new target is 26.1% above the average target of $126.86. Apple's stock has gained 6.0% over the past three months while the Nasdaq 100 has advanced 10.9% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has tacked on 8.0%.

Several tech companies -- including Apple Inc. , Google parent Alphabet Inc. , Intel Corp. , and Cisco Systems Inc. -- have made pledges to nonprofit social-justice organizations and causes.
