New York, NY (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
In a recent Profit Confidential article, financial expert Mitchell Clark reports that Walt Disney has been one of the best-performing Dow stocks; but the position recently broke its 50-day moving average (MA) and, at $45.00 a share, will soon break its 200-day MA. (Source: Yahoo! Finance, last accessed November 18, 2012.) According to Clark, in addition to the turn in Disney’s stock, last week’s trading action in the stock market was awful, as not even good news could get investors buying. The Profit Confidential expert states that the main stock market averages are likely to continue their decline because the market is in a lull, the period of time between earnings seasons when stock market investors tend to focus more on worries and less on corporate reality.
“This stock market isn’t going anywhere without Apple, Google, and Amazon.com,” reasons Clark. “While the majority of large-cap technology stocks have been breaking down for some time now, these three stocks have only recently capitulated.”
In the article “Mini Bear Finally Breaks This Market’s Toughest Stocks,” Clark notes that, in addition to Walt Disney, Apple, Google, and Amazon.com, many other stock market leaders have recently began to turn.
Clark notes that even Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. has succumbed to the mini bear rally.
“This Dow stock held up right until the end of October before going into a meaningful downtrend,” reports Clark. “The company’s third-quarter earnings were solid, but like so many other large companies, revenues came in disappointingly light.”
Clark believes the sentiment is weak because investors are looking at current expectations for earnings growth (which are flat), they are seeing declining revenue growth, and they are then re-evaluating their exposure to the stock market. Clark reasons that even with dividend income, if corporate earnings aren’t growing, then they are not worth paying for. He adds that given the investment risk in the stock market, which is significant, cash is a more attractive asset.
“With sovereign debt, the upcoming fiscal cliff, and current geopolitical events to focus on, the main stock market averages are likely to continue their decline,” Clark concludes. “Earnings expectations are now secondary.”
Profit Confidential, which has been published for over a decade now, has been widely recognized as predicting five major economic events over the past 10 years. In 2002, Profit Confidential started advising its readers to buy gold-related investments when gold traded under $300 an ounce. In 2006, it “begged” its readers to get out of the housing market...before it plunged.
Profit Confidential was among the first (back in late 2006) to predict that the U.S. economy would be in a recession by late 2007. The daily e-letter correctly predicted the crash in the stock market of 2008 and early 2009. And Profit Confidential turned bullish on stocks in March of 2009 and rode the bear market rally from a Dow Jones Industrial Average of 6,440 on March 9, 2009, to 12,876 on May 2, 2011, a gain of 99%.
