    Jun 30, 2012 11:07 AM | about stocks: AA, AAPL, AMZN, BAC, BIDU, C, CMCSA, CSCO, FCX, GE, GOOG, IBM, INTC, JNJ, JPM, MCD, MO, MSFT, PFE, BBRY, T, SBUX, SIRI, VZ, WFC, WMT, XOM, GLD, SLV, SPY, QQQ
    Saturday Article Update: Investing Wisely - - Forecasts / Confirmations = Profitable Results ! - - June 30, 2012

    To support my articles that are published by SeekingAlpha.com, I write two weekly Instablog postings that you may wish to follow.

    #1. This Saturday edition is simple, it provides updated: Alerts, Warnings and Rankings and long-term charts. It covers many of the companies that are included in my recent SeekingAlpha.com articles. It is entitled: Saturday Article Update: Investing Wisely - - Forecasts / Confirmations = Results !

    #2. On Wednesday after the close I publish my Wednesday format entitled: Wednesday - Investing Wisely - - Market Update and Commentary.

    It is Really Quite Simple - To Profit Consistently

    My Analytics begins with Accurate Forecasting Procedures then Requires Well Honed Fundamental and Technical Confirmations and ends with Very Positive / Profitable - Profitable Results. ( F / C = PR )

    Saturday Instablog postings are my way to share my market opinions and Hyperlink the articles that I write for SafeHaven.com and SeekingAlpha.com and Community Nasdaq.com.

    I would like to share my purpose for writing these articles and providing this Saturday guidance: I do not believe today's - Investors can compete with the pros. The stock market is a whole new ball game with very different and changing rules and ethics. I hope you can understand these words and will consider retaining my asset management / consulting professional services.

    Please scroll to the bottom of this Instablog and read my Communications and Closing.

    General Market - Where are We & Where are we Going?

    The answer is in this graphic!

    This is covered in the above mentioned: Wednesday - Investing Wisely - - Market Update and Commentary. (Click Here to view my entire list of Instablogs, buy date)

    My Latest Postings of Published Articles and Guidance on Companies

    Before you start to review the tables below, I would like to share a few basics about my research / analytics. First, the companies in these tables are a fraction of the securities in my universe. Of the 1,500 companies in my universe, seldom are any of the below companies the ones I identify with the current lowest risk and also have the highest profit profile. Second, if you do your own analytics and due diligence in the management of your portfolio, you must have the experience and know-how to be consistently profitable. I am seldom impressed with those investors whom I visit with (Email) as to their dedication to doing their homework (analytics) as well as is necessary to be consistently profitable. And Last, if you are one percent (amount of professional fees) more experienced( 50+ years) and profitable (15+% or better), then I am, why do you spend time reading my postings? If your answer is - to get ideas and guidance, I guarantee you will never be a consistently profitable investor trying to use other people's brains within these financial blogs. This is a statistical and proven fact that must be considered before you have serious losses!

    I suggest if you invest in any of these companies or ETFs without having a serious conversation with your "seasoned" financial advisor or having an Email dialog with me tha - - you are definitely - not very smart!

    Notes for above & below Tables: Symbol is interactive with my most recent article on that company - clicking on the symbols will take you to my article. And, clicking on ( chart ) will give you a very simple chart for that company. Alerts are when I believe the company is a possible future buy. Warnings are when I believe the company is a possible sell / short. Report Card is My weighted Fundamental, Technical and Consensus Opinion ratings range from Excellent to Very Poor. Grades below 90 / A are not current (never are) candidates for buying. Grades above 60 / F are not current (never are) candidates for short selling. Information and data are ever changing, so be alert. Every company's "Grade" can be from a neutral grade (60 to 90 / D to B) to a buy (greater than 90) or short sale (less than 60) in a very short time.

    Further support for the above notes can be read in my Instablog article on "My Rotation Model."

    Alert Key: Alert # 1: Possible Bullish Inflection Point in the making.

    Alert # 2: Getting seriously Bullish.

    Alert # 3: Recommended Buying. (These words are in the - past tense!)

    Warning Key: Warning # 1: Possible Bearish Inflection Point in the making.

    Warning # 2: Getting seriously Bearish.
