Here is the latest truth on Spain. The bailout already happened by stealth from very reliable sources. My sources are never wrong. The Bank holiday is going to spill over to Spain, Portugal and France. The Flight to safe harbor now is the UK. From there you will see flights to the US dollar. The main players have moved to Gold. Watch for another shock to SLV and GLD market. This will cause shaky uncommitted hands to dump more SLV and GLD physical. ETF markets will take massive hit.

Germany will start to have massive upheaval as their banks Duetche Bank in particular is over exposed to Spanish Flue, solvency crunch will hit Germany, look for Germans to go mad over the fact they can not have access to their funds. (more)

This Mobile Advertising Stock Could Jump 40%

Mobile devices have become like extensions of us. Through smartphones, we can instantly connect to the world, no matter where we are or what we're doing.

Perhaps not surprisingly, we spend about 10% of our time on our mobile devices, according to a 2010 study conducted by eMarketer. By the end of 2012, industry analysts expect the time we spend on our phones and tablets will double, or even triple from those levels.

Yet, in 2010, the amount spent advertising on mobile devices accounted for just 0.9% of all total ad dollars.

This picture is quickly changing, however. Advertising targeted for mobile devices -- known as mobile advertising -- is now the most rapidly growing segment of the ad industry!

According to research by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and Strategy Analytics, a firm which tracks industry data, spending on mobile ads topped over $5.3 billion last year. By the end of 2012, it's expected to more than double from those levels, becoming a $11.6 billion industry. (more)

Three Charts Your Stockbroker Won’t Want You To See

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / June 18, 2012

While every long-only manager and jobbing stockbroker is hard at work twisting the simple logic of ‘but, but Central Banks will print and save the world’ into a much more appetizing ‘US decoupling, cleanest-shirt, ignore Europe, earnings, profits, money-on-the-sidelines’ euphemism, we note that the following three charts from UBS suggest that things are not quite as rosy as one might believe – whether or not Ben speaks monetarily this week. Between consensus growth expectations rolling over, the analyst upgrade/downgrade ratio turning negative once again, and recent changes in US growth remain positively ecstatic relative to global/regional changes; it would appear hope is a powerful (and hallucinatory) drug (as is QE kool-aid).

The progression of consensus earnings growth estimates is rolling over for 2012 and stalling for 2013…


GNC Holdings Inc. (NYSE: GNC)

As I often state in my newsletters, it never hurts to have stocks in your watch list that present you with trading opportunities regardless of what direction the market heads. One such stock that fits the description of giving you a trade either way would be that of GNC Holdings, Inc.

GNC Holdings, Inc. operates as a specialty retailer of health and wellness products. Its products include vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplement products, as well as sports nutrition and diet products. The company sells its products under its GNC proprietary brands, including Mega Men, Ultra Mega, GNC Total Lean, Pro Performance, and Pro Performance AMP, as well as under third-party brands. As of December 31, 2011, it had approximately 7,600 locations, including approximately 5,900 retail locations in the United States comprising 924 franchises and 2,125 Rite Aid franchise store-within-a-store locations; and franchise operations in 53 countries. GNC Holdings, Inc. sells its products through company-owned domestic retail stores, domestic and international franchise activities, third-party contract manufacturing, e-commerce, and corporate partnerships.

To review GNC's stock, please take a look at the 1-year chart of GNC (GNC Holdings, Inc.) below with my added notations:

Over the last (2) months, GNC has been consolidating within a couple of short-term price levels. First, GNC has formed a clear support level at $35 (navy). In addition, the stock has also been forming a down trending resistance level (blue), which has now been tested (3) different times. These two levels combined have GNC stuck within a common chart pattern known as a Descending Triangle that will eventually have to break one way or another.

The Tale of the Tape: GNC is currently trading between its down trending resistance and $35 support. A long trade could be made on a break above the down trending resistance with a stop placed under the breakout point. Or, you could enter a short trade on GNC if the stock breaks below the $35 support level. In that case, a stop should be placed above the level of entry.

Gerald Celente: “Tidal Wave” of Investors Coming to Gold

wealthwire.com / by Brittany Stepniak

Renowned financial trends forecaster Gerald Celente grimly states that each new day presents a new catastrophe. Everyday, politicians and central bankers say the crisis must me mended as the entire financial system lies on the verge of collapse.

With each passing day, an increased number of smart investors opt for gold because of the wild volatility elsewhere. The eurozone crisis has sparked a coming tidal wave of investors expected to enter the gold markets in the coming weeks and months.

Greece may leave the eurozone, Spain just gained $125 from the “Spailout”, and the trillions of dollars of debt remain…it’s a bleak outlook for sure.

China is preparing for a Greece euro exit and just lowered their interest rates for the first time since the financial meltdown of 2008. It is also about to replace India as the largest gold market with demand expected to increase by 30% in 2012. Individuals and nations alike are doing the best they can to be as financially savvy as possible in these deeply uncertain times.


CSX Corp. is challenging its bearish resistance

CSX Corp. (NYSE:CSX) – This operator of the largest rail network in the eastern U.S. is expected to be driven higher by an increase in foreign coal shipments, as well as auto and international container shipments. Profit margins are expected to rise in 2012 because of an increase in volume and productivity. Earnings are expected to rise from $1.35 in 2010 and $1.67 in 2011 to $1.84 in 2012. Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) sees steady growth ahead and has a target of $28 on the stock.

Technically, the stock had been consolidating just under its 50-day moving average at $22. However, several weeks ago the stock flashed a golden cross (long-term buy signal), but then pulled back on a market selloff to $20. Our proprietary internal indicator flashed a buy at $20 on June 4, and within 10 days the stock had advanced through its resistance and now challenges the bearish resistance line at less than $23. Buy CSX at the market.
