    Tuesday Edition - Citigroup, Inc. - August 28, 2012

    It's Tuesday morning,

    As you likely know, I also publish articles in SafeHaven.com rather frequently.

    My most recent postings are on Apple, Inc. (AAPL) and Citigroup, Inc. (C). These articles reviews my May - Opinion and Forecast for these Companies and offer further insight into the kind of Guidance I provide to my Clients.

    Here are the URLs:

    AAPL: http://www.safehaven.com/article/26594/investing-wisely-apple-inc-forecasts-confirmations-profitable-results - - -

    Opinion / Forecast: Accuracy: Right on the Button / Percent Gain: 29% - May 18, 2012 - to - Not Yet Terminated.

    Apple, Inc. is coming down with the rest of the Market. I know, the world thinks AAPL can only go up. WRONG! Look at my 20-year chart in my posting and Saturday - Instablog for AAPL. Are the 50+ % losses in 2000 and again in 2008 not convincing?

    C: http://www.safehaven.com/article/26662/investing-wisely-citigroup-inc-forecasts-confirmations-results - - -

    Opinion / Forecast: Accuracy: Right on the Button / Percent Gain: 12% - May 25, 2012 - to termination.

    Citigroup, Inc. There is no comparing this Company to Apple. It is a 4+ year loser. How investors can remain loyal is beyond my comprehension.

    Important Caveat for - My Opinions and Forecasts:

    Caveat (an example): I am currently Forecasting a pull back for Citigroup -- (like last week's article on Apple, Inc.). I must use the following explanation to qualify the "When" the pull back will actually begin. It (a pull back or a rally) is always dependent and pending much more data from my Confirmations procedures. (see below for my definition / explanation of "Confirmations").

    On any given date it is easy for me to accurately determine a short or long term trend. It is not all that easy to "Pin Point" the "When" a new Bullish or Bearish Inflection Point will occur.

    Understand I write these article once or more times per week for my financial blogs and other Advisory Consulting and individual Clients. And, it is a fact that the combined Bullish and Bearish Inflection Points (historically) only occur 3 - 5 times per year.

    Citigroup is a perfect example: I am Forecasting yet another Bearish Inflection Point. It may have (that) Bearish Inflection Point in the next few days or the Bearish Inflection Point may not occur for several more week. I can forecast, with high probability the Inflection Point is in the making, but I need my "Confirmations" to tell me "When" actual Bearish Infection Point occurs.

    That is your problem of being a Follower and not a Client. I Email my Clients on the day my Conformations all kick in and make specific formal (low risk) security recommendations specifically for their needs, goals and objectives. Remember - That event occurs just 3 - 5 times per year. Projected profits are always a minimum of 15% per security per recommendation for Buying or Short Selling.

    I hope you will want to Email me with your questions and thoughts about this Caveat and my procedures for guidance in making consistent annual profits.

    Confirmations: "Confirmations" occur "When" about a dozen of my special fundamental valuation models and technical chart configurations - kick in. This (waiting) requires much Discipline and Patience for making Wise Investment decisions. I can anticipate a "Conformation" kicking in, but there are always times when I am disappointed. It just does not happen as expected! That, in a nut-shell, is the incredible value of my "Conformations. So, it is back to using my Methodology and waiting for the next investment opportunity to come along.

    Please Read my Saturday (Instablog) Postings - it is a Monthly Update of AAPL and 12 other Dow 30 Companies. I provide Guidance with Warnings and Alerts, and they too are very accurate.

    If these postings are not sufficient for you to want to make Email contact, I recommend you stop following me and find someone else to follow. I will only give away the farm (my Guidance) for a short time, and then I am gone! I am seeking new Asset Management / Consulting and Mentoring Clients. If paying a one percent professional fee for a return of 15+% consistent annual profit is not in your mindset - I repeat my recommendation to follow someone else.

    If you take positions without notifying me for further guidance, I suggest you are just plain stupid. I can assure you that taking Guidance without the complete picture, from the source, is a sure way to be a very long-term LOSER. I am all through bailing out readers that act on my advice without any Email contact with me. Here are some examples of what I get to read from my years of trying to be of help ( "I thought you meant. You did not say. I have no way to know when you advise "termination" of a position. I did not understand your Warning / Alert system of communication. ETC " ) I am here to offer my experience and guidance, but I expect to be paid for it. Clients receive a minimum of two special Emails per week with encouragement to share their thoughts. Followers often have up to a half-a-dozen articles and comments per week from me in my various financial blogs.

    You may have noted that my personal blog has been terminated. Please open it to read my reasons for termination.

    Please Email me if you are interested in further Guidance or Clarification of my postings and perhaps details of my professional services. I do not reply to SA message board communications / only Emails with some background on yourself and your financial needs, goals and objectives.

    My Email Address: senorstevedrmx@yahoo.com

    Thanks, I hope to hear from you via Email. If you do not receive a prompt reply it is because you, for what ever reason, came through as spam. Yahoo is not perfect and neither am I. Giving you my best is important to me so be persistent until you and I have a profitable Email dialog in motion. Thanks.

    Smile, have fun Investing Wisely,

    Dr. Steve
