Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been set a new target share price of 400 by the equity analyst team at JPMorgan Chase.

The target suggests there is a potential upside of 38.32% on Apple Inc stock from yesterday's close of 289.19.

The call by JPMorgan follows that made by Jefferies, the global investment bank.

Jefferies are less bullish on Apple having set their target share price at 365.

The call by the investment bank is a new rating.

It was a subdued days trade for Apple Inc on the Nasdaq, the stock could only muster 0.09% gains.
