Aviva plc has recently reported its third-quarter update. The firm reiterated its 5-7% profit growth guidance in 2023. This news solidified the uptrend in the stock of one of the Britain’s largest insurers which also broke above its 200-daily moving average.
Aviva share price forecast is looking bullish as shares surged to a new monthly high today. There is definitely some resistance above 415p but a strong demand in the coming days could easily push the price toward its next resistance of 435p.
