Mitie Share Price Forecast

The Mitie share price forecast may remain bullish if the bulls gain strength above the June 2018 high of 109p. In this case, a 49% rally toward the 162p resistance level will be on the cards. However, a rejection from the current levels may open doors for a retest of the August lows of 91p.
