Performance Record of My High Profile / Bellwether Company Forecasts - - 29% Year to Year

(click to enlarge)Click to enlarge

Notes for Above Table: a) In late May I published a ("Confirmed") Bullish Forecast for all 13 of the above Companies. b) Normally, I am "Selective" and Cherry Pick what appear to be the current Best of the Best at an Inflection Point to "Confirm" each Company Forecast. In this particular Forecast (late May) -- this was my way of publicly performing a "Specific Grouping of Companies" that will obviously Perform on a Best and Worst basis. (see the individual profits and losses for each Company) c) using "My Methodology" for "Investing Wisely" - from time to time I publish an Article on "Being Selective" (click) and this "Study." Once again, this "Confirmed" Bullish Forecast, that was the content of my 13 Articles and all my previous Analytics / Studies are doing their job very well. d) In other words, "My Methodology" (click) works even with Bearish Warnings on most all of these Companies! AA, F, INTC, MSFT and A&T&T all under performed as was expected from my Fundamental - Valuations and Technical Analysis. AAPL, BAC, C, CMCSA, CSCO, GE, GOOG, and XOM all over performed as was expected from my Fundamental - Valuations and Technical Analysis. Remember "My Rotation Model" (click) that I share so frequently is also very much - alive and well. There are always Companies that are currently In Favor and Companies that are currently Out of Favor. That's called "Being Selective" by using My Rotation Model!

Performance: Thirteen out of Thirteen profitable investments using my High Profile / Bellwether Companies is pretty good Performance in this Marketplace! (More recently Ford has turned mildly profitable - so - it is currently - Thirteen out of Thirteen!) These Companies were all ("Confirmed") Bullish Forecasts, Averaging 18.92% despite the Bearish Warnings I had on most all of the Companies.

I have closed out all positions and am Currently in Cash.
