Even though Twitter (TWTR) is down $5 today, the stock is still 35% above its average analyst price target based on Bloomberg's calculations. That's the farthest above an average price target for any stock in the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100 by a wide margin. (TWTR is not yet in the S&P 500 or Nasdaq 100.)
Below is a list of the S&P 500 stocks that are the farthest above their average analyst price targets. As shown, Alcoa (AA) is 21.95% above its average target, which is 14 percentage points below the average for Twitter.
TWTR obviously ran away from analysts with its huge gains over the last couple of weeks. Now analysts have to decide whether they want to hold tight and keep their targets the same, or up their price targets to get them more in-line with where the stock is currently trading. If they choose the latter, it could boost Twitter's price even more.
