Why all the quoted headlines and upgrade aticles quoted below? Because if "don't fight the Fed" is the theme for a sprint to year end, with China easing and the cooordianted liquidity intervention by central banks the backdrop, then the belief may become that a recession may be avoided, that the leading indicators might be trusted, and that the market may rally with Santa Claus into year end or more. So, how to invest? Members have a 15 minute video this weekend with my actual invested portfolio of 35 picks with my macro economic and technical analysis.

But one piece of that plan is shared here: deep cyclicals with On Balance Volume soaring and upgrades flying like Reindeer. The video (linked) walks thru fundamentals, technicals and some Fibonacci's specifically. But Fed policy and macro economics are the key, and are reflected in our moidified Dow Theory analysis, some of which we share in this 11 minute video as well. Ho Ho Ho.

By the way, I've kept up weekend free videos on my preview site, but not postings like here the last month..busy have babie(s)..;) Beautiful, perfect twin stock investors.

UPDATE 1-Global Hunter starts Flotek with buy; shares rise

(Follows alerts)

Dec 2 (Reuters) - Oilfield services company Flotek Industries' shares gained as much as 9 percent on Friday after Global Hunter Securities started its coverage of the company with a "buy" rating.

The brokerage firm said that the company was "overlooked, undervalued, and under-appreciated."

"A fallen angel of the small-cap oil service space that over-promised, under-delivered and took cash flow from its high margin growth business to grow its low margin commodity business, is set for another rise," Global Hunter said.

"There are innumerable anecdotal examples of improved management, which we believe will lead to both top- and bottom-line growth, as well as investor confidence," analyst Brian Uhlmer said.

The brokerage set a $15 price target on the stock, and added that the acquisition of Teledrift that almost ruined Flotek in 2008, was finally beginning to pay off as logging mandates in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma kept demand high.

Shares of the company stood at $9.83 on Friday, up 9 percent, after closing at $8.99 on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday.

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 1½1/11 -- Today, www.BollingerReport.comintroduced featured coverage of Cliffs Natural Resources Inc (NYSE: CLF) and Plains Exploration & Production Company (NYSE: PXP). Full research reports are available to readers at: www.BollingerReport.com/index.php?sm1=CLF&sm2=PXP.

With the European Financial Stability Facility set to increase to $1.4 trillion, it marks a significant move forward to strengthen the safety net in place for Europe's most troubled countries. Private bondholders of Greek debt are settling at a 50% haircut as another $180 billion in fresh aid is set to arrive, enabling banks to recapitalize at a healthy 9% reserve. Overall, these measures will bring Greece's debt burden down to 120% of GDP by 2020. An important consideration is political commitment to this road map. Currently the global community appears to be on point with ECB's initiative, an outlook that should be sufficient to support markets around current levels.
