I once went to a seminar about predicting stocks and the speaker said all stocks are biased on is the past of that stock. Well I'd like to add a few things to that statement. Yes, I agree a stocks past has something to do with how it does in the future but also you have to look at the market for this company and how it's assets are doing. For example apple had 176.06B dollars in assets for Sept. 30 2012. That company also had a spring upward in there stock position in Dec. 10,2012 to Dec. 11,2012. Which was a movement of 529 to 541 in just one day. Apple although has dropped .72% in the last 30 days. Apples past predicts a November jump as well with numbers like 527-565 in 3 days you have to wonder about what next years pre-Christmas sales will be and how early they will start! On another note Nokia Corp. is still in the race for smartphone sales with a +1.32% for today the might be a light at the end of the tunnel. Prediction for these two examples is easy and yet still very difficult. Taxes, economy, growth rate, sales revenue, ect. all words that have to do with prediction. Always remember its three simple steps to identifying the numbers ahead 1. Look at their decisions in the past comparing to where they're at now, 2. Ask yourself what the economy is like now and compared to how it was when they made the decision in the company, 3. Look at their assets and the big numbers NOW if you don't apply the recent info then you won't get the info ahead. All it takes is 3 steps and your ready but remember at the end it's up to you how you predict your stock's!
