Apple Analysts Cut Price Targets After Disappointing Quarter

Almost across the board on Thursday, sell side analysts slashed their price targets on Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) as the stock tumbled about 10 percent.

Brian White of Topeka Capital, who had the highest price target on the street, cut it from $1111 to $888. He maintained his Buy rating. Jeff Gundlach, founder of Doubleline Capital, appeared on CNBC Wednesday and basically called out White directly.

Gundlach, a noted Apple bear, trashed the analyst community and characterized White's $1111 price target as a “cute” figure indicative of “game playing.”
