most recent edition of Investment Research Market Watch. "Target price increased to $70 from $60; recent strength in stock reflects perceptions that (1) credit difficulties are essentially over and (2) solid top-line performance reduces risk that tighter credit quality will produce substandard sales growth". Today was a good start toward the new target price!
What you just said is what I said in message #418. Read the posts and you'll see that brokerage houses are a waste of time believing. I only use independent research for stock forecasting. Brokerage houses only try to manipulate stock prices by getting customers in and out of these select stocks so they can make money. Yes I think Sears will hit 65 but lets see, Argus has been pretty darn good on their projections so I'll trust them that they think that Sears will have a target of 72.
