rah1711..."What's going on today???"

Where to begin? JCI is a cyclical stock…the automotive industry is taking a hit…the economy has been tanking—although it is showing signs of recovery…most analysts have JCI ranked as a hold…and the stock has a history of downturns during the fall and early winter months. I submit http://www.quicken.com/investments/charts/?symbol=JCI as proof for the last four years… When a company holds this type of consistent pattern, it is not fortune telling, just an honest observation. I usually buy from September through January. It has worked very well for me.

However, the stock generally begins a rise in late January. Should the stock maintain its average price above the 65 dollar level, it should rise even higher next year...that's given a general optimism that the company will continue its winning ways and patterns...also, that the economy does rise above its present duldrums.
