My Current Forecast remains bright! (I will be more specific upon request).

If you own or are considering owning Consumer Finance Companies, the securities are currently and definitely a mixed bag with more bad than good. However, many are doing very well. Am. Express Company is currently relatively strong Technically but I have a few reservations about my Fundamental Valuation.

My Current Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.

Fundamentally - ( weighting - - 40% ): My Analytics for my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (AXP) are not as positive at perhaps you are being told by other sources.

Technically - ( weighting - - 35%): Even with this fine Company, my Indicators are breaking down. It is on or near its highs of $90.

Consensus Opinion - ( weighting - - 25% ): My third pillar of Research is one that is ALWAYS distorted to the Positive by most all financial analysts. That's because they are afraid of being Bearish. I Am NOT! My articles on "Reality" are supportive of the below 20 year Chart.

I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (AXP) !
