    Dow 30 Industrial Average - - Forecast - Archive - - An Integral Part of My Methodology for Peace of Mind - and - Consistent / Superior - Annual Profits

    My logo for Over 50 Years is: "Investing Wisely."

    I am pleased that I am a weekly Contributor to Doug Short s Advisor Perspectives blog / site.

    Please scroll down to my archive of articles posted here in SeekingAlpha.com. For this weeks article the Dow Components are: (to review my article archive for each - just click: (UTX), (V), (VZ), (WMT), and (XOM).

    Advisor Perspective is one of the very finest and elite financial blogs in cyber-space. You will find there are quite a number of excellent financial authors most certainly including Doug's insights into the economy. I recommend you tune into his Blog.

    My present contribution are to share my Forecasts and Opinions on select U. S. Industry Groups - and - Dissecting the Dow Jones Industrial Average. I write two separate articles each week for Doug and that covers the General Market and Industry Groups. I also publish my Sector Update on Wednesdays in SeekingAlpha.com. These three perspectives fit into the top of the pyramid and the above graphic. This graphic has provided both me and my Clients superior and consistent profitability for over 50 years.

    Just so you know I do the same "Dissecting" for the S&P Large Cap - 500 / S&P Mid Cap - 400 / S&P - Small Cap - 600 Indexes. That's 1,500 Companies to confirm and know the most probable bullish / flat / bearish direction of. Each is rates as Favorable / Also-Rans / Un-Favorable.

    As for my Industry Groups, there are over 350 such Industry Groups and I am on top of them all - - 24/7. Unfortunately I cannot share all my work / analytics for every Industry Group. I will reply to your questions and thoughts via Email.

    For me it is a simple and integral part of my Methodology for Investing Wisely that is focused on Identifying those Industry Groups within the General Market Sectors that are currently in one of two Groupings.

    * Favorable - - ( Top 10% ) - Those Industry Groups that have or are about to turn meaningfully Bullish for Buying. My Methodology focuses on the Best of the Best in Bullish Cycles of the General Market.

    * Un-Favorable - - ( Bottom 10% ) - Those Industry Groups that have or are about to turn meaningfully Bearish for Shorting. My Methodology focuses on the Worst of the Worst in Bearish Cycles of the General Market.

    If you are following my work / analytics, you already know that I track very closely those Industry Groups that are currently in the Top 10% Favorable and the Bottom 10% Un-Favorable. The remaining current, eighty percent - I call 'um "Also-Rans" and are the 80% Neutral Sectors and Industry Groups and are definitely of no current interest for my on going Formal Recommendations to my Clients.

    Simple stated: Always - - I maintain a Favorable List and an Un-Favorable List of Sectors, Industry Groups, Companies and ETFs that have the highest probability of making money with the lowest possible risk threshold. It is a matter being profitable in the coming time frame ( Bullish or Bearish ) and in the foreseeable future.

    In a nut-shell my very profitable "Investing Wisely" approach to investing is to be in sync with the Bullish Cycles of the General Market, owing selective "Favorable" Companies / ETFs. And also in sync with the Bearish Cycles of the General Market, owing highly selective "Un-Favorable Companies / ETFs. These Companies / ETFs always come from my work with both Sectors and Industry Groups. Unfortunately, this requires long-hours of work / analytics and that is why my forte is Forecasting, and Forecasting and Forecasting. With this procedure, I get to know, well in advance, both the What to own and When to own and later when to sell it.

    Forecasting

    This is how I was able to Identify and then Accurately Forecast:

    * The fall of Apple, Inc.

    * The fall of Gold / Silver and Precious Metals

    * The fall of Metals within the Basic Materials Sector.

    * The on going strength of the Automobile Industry

    * The on going strength of the Banking Industry

    * The on going strength (which is waning) of the Oil - Equipment & Service Industry

    * The on going strength of the Internet Industry

    * The current weakness in the Mexican Stock Market

    And MANY other Very Accurate Forecasts and subsequent Formal Recommendations to my Clients.

    ( ALL these and many more were my "Calls" and ALL were published in SeekingAlpha.com. I also regularly publish my Performance for the past five (5) years and also for the past fifty-six (57) years. )
