We both know damn well that you did not listen, in their individual entirety, to the webcasted 2011 third quarter conference calls of McDonalds, Harley Davidson, Pfizer, General Electric and Dow Chemical. 

I did.

Why? Because this is what long term equity investors DO. 

Call me crazy, but some of us actually ask the basic question "so how's business?" before we form an opinion. Thus, not only did each of these companies guide UP, and not down. Not only did I "read between the lines", but....wait for it.... I know how to think for myself! Which is something you cannot do without a "chart."

By now, it should be obvious to the intelligent reader that You, Sir, are just another amatuer speculating with his money.  

Good luck. You're going to need it
