It is Really Quite Simple - F (plus) C (equals) R

Investing Wisely - Intel: Forecasts + Confirmations = Results!

It begins with Accurate Forecasting and Analytic Procedures that produce consistent profits, then it requires a dozen Well Honed Fundamental, Technical and Consensus Opinion -- Confirmations, and it ends with Profitable - Results. (F + C = R )

My weekly series of articles, posted here in SafeHaven.com are: AA, AAPL, BAC, C, CMCSA, CSCO, F, GE, GOOG, INTC, MSFT, AT&T, XOM. (To view my 20-Year Charts of the above symbols - Click on the Symbol).

Note I - for the above Companies: a) These are my High Profile / Bellwether Companies that I primarily use in my work / analytics to Identify Candidates for Buying in Bullish Cycles and Candidates for Shorting in Bearish Cycles. b) However - they are NOT often my favorite or choice Companies to Recommend for Buying or Shorting to my Clients! c) There are nearly ALWAYS other Companies that are on my Buying / Shorting List with a much better - Risk to Reward Ratio and Profit Projection. d) To Plug Into my Work / Analytics -- Please re-read"My Rotation Model." It is all about identifying the most favorable Companies to Buy and identifying the least favorable Companies to Short during the respective Bullish Cycles and Bearish Cycles of the General Stock Market and that particular Company. You also might also want to re-read "My Methodology". e) Please read: "Being Selective" is not to be ignored when Investing Wisely.


Professors, F + C = R - Forecast / Opinion of: Intel (INTC): (July 21st.)

Quoting my (June 21st.) Intel - Forecast:

"My near-term Forecast is that Intel has been coming down since early April just after I put out an initial bearish warning to my Clients. The foreseeable appreciation picture for Intel is not nearly as bright as most financial analysts are publishing." Please click on Intel to review my previous article and exact words.

Despite the negative words in my Forecast of July 23rd, a Bullish Cycle was in process, therefore that Forecast became my first level Bullish Alert and clearly very accurate.

Understand, I was on a Bullish and "Confirmed" Forecast. In early June - Intel was selling for $25.00 and it is currently at $21.50. You will note that I sold Intel soon after my recommendation and made a very small profit. (That's a poor profit, during an accurate and profitable "Confirmed" Bullish Forecast during this three month period is a clear example of my participating / buying a Company that did not have supporting fundamental - Valuation data). Please re-read my notes for my above Formula. It works very well when you have both fundamentals and technical in sync.

You may also want to check my July 13th. - Report Card on Intel - that too was very accurate. My most current Report Card is less positive. (please see below)

If you will read this article and my last eight Company postings, here in SafeHaven.com you will note that ALL, of my previously written Articles ( about 3 months ago ) have provided: Accurate "Confirmed" Forecasts and are, ALL Profitable.


Note II: I hope it is important to you to understand that my work / analytics is based on My Methodology that focuses on three key aspects of analytics. The first and primary is a) Fundamental - Valuation, the second is b) Inflection Point - Technical Analysis and lastly I definitely include c) My special approach to -Consensus Opinion.

I have taken profits on ALL 13 Companies. (Profits were taken previously for INTC). Unfortunately I cannot post these articles on Companies in the same manner I can communicate by (Email) with my private Clientele.

You might want to visit my recent article here in SafeHaven.com - Updating the Performance of these "Confirmed" Forecast. Performance turned out to be just a tad better than this "Performance" posting. (click here)

Current - Professors, F + C = R - Forecast / Opinion of: Intel (INTC): (October 23rd.)

I am now Forecasting (Not to Be "Confirmed") a pull back (after a mini- rally) for Intel. Please scroll down to "My Forecast Summary" - for all thirteen of the above Companies.


Note III: Buying / Shorting Companies (any Company) that is not in sync with my fundamental valuations and technical price movement is for me, not ever advisable, prudent and often is a very expensive mistake!

If you are interested in privately receiving my on going Forecasts for any of the above Symbols or perhaps your current holdings - just send me a request by Email. I will have a couple of questions for you but promise to reply with my best guidance.

Note IV: My Forecasts are just that, an opinion based on my fundamental - valuation, technical charts and consensus opinion this is on data as well as the information that is available at the time of publishing an article. It is the "Confirmation" of that Forecast that is most important! Until I can "Confirm" a Bullish or Bearish security to Recommend to my Clients - We Remain in Cash!

The single factor that can delay a very good Forecast is the News. News however, is only a temporary delay in the Bullish or Bearish direction of a given Forecast. That is why it is important to stay with the facts and real data and not be influenced by outside and temporal flows of media and other misguided information.

As you know by now, each week I rotate and feature another of the above Companies for your consideration of my accuracy and ability to produce consistent profitable Guidance.

If you would like my most current thoughts on this or another company, please contact me by Email. (Serious Investors only - Please!)


My Forecast Summary - (please note the dates)

My Forecast Summary

Note for the above Table: Bullish Alerts and Bearish Warning have three levels. Level #1 is an initial Alert / Warning to be prepared to Buy / Sell that security. Level #2 is saying / suggesting this is getting serious! Level #3 is a final Alert / Warning and I am currently using only my Technical Tool to determine - When to Buy / Sell!


Important Caveat for - My Opinions, Guidance and Forecasts: (an example):

Forecasts: I am currently Forecasting a pull back for Intel. I must use the following explanation to qualify the "When" the pull back will actually begin. It (the "When" of a Forecast of a pull back or a rally) is always dependent and pending on much more data from my "Confirmations" procedures). (see below for my definition / explanation of "Confirmations").

On any given date it is easy for me to accurately determine a short or long-term trend. It is not all that easy to "Pin Point" the "When" a new Bullish or Bearish Inflection Point will occur.

Understand I write these article once or more times per week for my financial blogs and other Advisory Consulting and Individual Clients. And, it is a fact that the combined Bullish and Bearish Inflection Points (historically) only occur 3 - 5 times per year.

Intel is another perfect example: I am Forecasting yet another Bearish Inflection Point. It (Intel) may have (that) Bearish Inflection Point in the next a number of days or the Bearish Inflection Point may not occur for several more week. I can Forecast, with high probability the Inflection Point is in the making, but I need my "Confirmations" to tell me "When" the next Bullish or Bearish Infection Point occurs.

I Email my Clients on the day my "Confirmations" have all kicked- in and make specific formal (low risk) security recommendations specifically for their specific Financial (needs, goals and objectives). Remember - That event occurs just 3 - 5 times per year. Minimum Projected Profits are always a minimum of 15% per security per recommendation for Buying or Short Selling.

I hope you will want to Email me with your questions and thoughts about this Caveat and my procedures for Guidance in helping to make you consistent annual profits.

Confirmations: "Confirmations" occur "When" about a dozen of my special fundamental valuation models and technical chart "Configurations" - kick-in. This (waiting) requires much Discipline and Patience for making Wise Investment decisions. I can anticipate a "Confirmation" kicking in. It just does not often happen as expected! That, in a nut-shell, is the incredible value of my "Confirmations."

Results (Profits): Profitable Results, like most things in life, come after doing a job well. And that all comes from experience and hard work.

I am the guy who wrote the 38 week course on Investment Basics. See the link on the right column (side-bar) of SafeHaven.com - Home Page.



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

My "Fundamentals" are over-valued. My "Technicals" are over-bought. My "Consensus Opinion" are much too bullish. Insiders are decidedly Selling. Interest Rates are on the rise. The economy is in much more peril than is being reported by the media.

Therefore, I continue to be bearish on the general market and the economy for the foreseeable future.

I will keep you posted ...
