Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:
International Business Machines Corp. and other Computer Services Companies are tracking well. Although (IBM) is in a strong but seriously weakening Rally it is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics.
My Forecast is not as bright as you may think !
If you own or are considering owning Computer Services Companies, the securities require "Selectivity" (see below). International Business Machines Corp. is currently strong / weakening Technically but I have reservations about my Fundamental Valuations, therefore I have placed it on an Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning."
My Opinion is Strong Caution !
Fundamentally, my Valuations remains relatively strong but are "Flat" producing future declining projections.
Technically, my Indicators are clearly breaking down. The pull-back since March at about $215 is offering strong support for my Bearish "Warning." A re-bound rally was in the making and will occur - - the strength of which will be very important as to when I will advise Clients to "Take Profits - and - move to Holding-Cash."
I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (IBM) !

A Word That Has Been Very Good to Both Me and My Clients
The Word is "Confirmations." I started using this word or better-said "procedure" many years ago when I became dissatisfied by the results of some of my Investments.
It has now become rather simple for me to be quite confident when Investing or making Formal Recommendations. Before taking any position I run through a "Check List" that has increased my percent of profitable investments from good to over 95%. It has also increased my profitability by over 5% (often much more) per transaction. It is very satisfying to me to share this when Investors ask about my professional fees for asset management services.
