Investing Wisely requires knowing and implementing these three ( W’s ) very well.  With the command of these three aspects of investing, I guarantee you will have consistent annual profits and enjoy financial peace of mind.

Current Opinion:   XOM is a Sell to Cash or Take Short Positions.  It has broken down since about April and does not look to have the future fundamentals to support the lofty $80+ prices of its highs.  Exxon Mobil has capitalized on the inflation of Oil & Gas (which of course you are paying for – through the nose).  Will energy continue to cost more and support companies like XOM?  My answer, as an economist is Yes.  But as a financial analyst, I doubt if stock prices will continue on the pace enjoyed for the past decades.  I suggest a meaningful pull back is in the making.  The move from the lows of 2010 of about $54 has been impressive.  I suggest you lower your expectations for the coming few quarters.  After a near-term pull back I expect another rally. 

The next XOM Inflection Point will likely be Bullish.  With XOM, during bearish general market time frames, despite its recent strength, I would rather go to cash to be safer than hold for a possible and meaningful pull back.   - - -   Note:  The accuracy of my forecasts / warnings / alerts is well respected as well as very accurate and profitable.  I use cash as a safe harbor and will short in bearish time frames.  If you are a buy & hold investor you would be wise to follow this series in InstaBlog.
