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

    (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.

    Please consider reading my confirming articles for the above Companies and ETFs in SafeHaven.com. They are listed under my name (Steve Bauer) under the heading of Authors.
