This is the price at which the trader or investor wants to exit his existing position so he can realize the most reward. The stock now has a consensus rating of "Buy" and an average price target of $146.89. There is no concrete way to calculate a price target. Different analysts and financial institutions use various valuation methods and consider different economic forces when deciding on a price target. Thirteen analysts rating the company a strong buy, 19 brokers rating the stock a buy, 4 brokers rating the company a hold, one equity analyst rating the company a underperform, and finally 0 firms rating the stock a sell with a consensus target price of $95.80.

MKM does caveat their bullishness by musing whether earnings results will prove enough in the short-term to satisfy investors and that many are "hoping for an opportunity to buy the stock on any pullback". This buyback authorization allows the specialty retailer to repurchase shares of its stock through open market purchases. The specialty retailer reported $0.63 earnings per share for the quarter, missing the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.64 by $0.01.

Maximum and minimum EPS estimate for the current quarter is projected at $13.09 and $10.3, respectively, according to 21 analysts. And expectations are high if we're to simply look and marvel at the who's who of hedge funds that have established new stakes in Alibaba over the last quarter. During the same period in the prior year, the company earned $0.47 EPS. It is the "top line" or "gross income" figure from which costs are subtracted to determine net income. Analysts believe that we could see stock price minimum in the $25 range (lowest target price), allowing for another 10.38% jump from its current position. The company reported revenue of $58.75 Billion in the same period a year ago.

A moving average can help cut down the amount of "noise" on a price chart. Moving toward the technical facts, its current distance from 20-Day Simple Moving Average is 0.40% and standing 6.33% away from 50-Day Simple Moving Average while traded up 35.83% from 200-Day Simple Moving Average.
