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

After trending higher from August until March of this year, SPR has now been consolidating within a small Rectangle pattern over the last (2) months. A Rectangle pattern forms when a stock gets stuck bouncing between a horizontal support and resistance. For SPR, the Rectangle pattern has formed a $24 resistance (red) and a $22 support (black). A break above $24 would bring the $26 level (blue) back into play as resistance.

The Tale of the Tape: SPR has formed a Rectangle pattern. The possible long positions on SPR would be either on a pullback to $22, or on a break above $24. The ideal short opportunity would be on a break below $22.

Total Financial Collapse by Fall 2012 - Chris Duane

Chris Duane (Silver Shield) joins George Noory to discuss Chris' view that we will have a world wide financial collapse by fall of 2012 , and the fall of the US Dollar and the global economic system, when it will happen, and what it will look like. Act now before it's too late.The people are dumbed down, we must abolish the illegal Federal Reserve, outlaw lobbying. get publicly funded campaigns, get an honest media, examine our foreign policy, for starters . We should get rid of the Federal Reserve and go back to Silver and Gold for money. The government steals from us by just printing more worthless dollars.
The founder of the Sons of Liberty Academy, Chris Duane, warned of the coming collapse of the US dollar due to the massive amount of increasing debt. He foresees the falling of weaker currencies first, leading to a domino effect that will see the eventual collapse of the dollar, which he characterized as "the single largest event in human history," as the world's economies are tied to the dollar. All the central banks are privately owned by families such as the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, and as a result they own the world, and are responsible for the debt paradigm, he asserted

COMEX Silver Futures Skewed Short, Potentially Explosive / by Gene Arensberg / July 3, 2012

HOUSTON – At the request of colleagues we respect and admire* and as a courtesy to our GGR blog readership, we are sharing below the video portion of the full Got Gold Report. We released the report below on Sunday, July 1, to Vultures (Got Gold Report Subscribers).

As we noted in a short note posted on the blog on Friday, the GGRPrivate Video comments on what we viewed as a potential inflection point for the COMEX silver futures market, and “suggests a market skewed short as of Tuesday, June 26, which is contrary bullish and can lead to explosive volatility in our simple way of looking at the COT.” (Commitments of traders reports.)

*We beg our paid subscriber’s indulgence, but when respected industry colleagues, names one would know instantly, take the trouble to write in and say that this video is “too important to keep from the public,” then we feel a humble obligation to comply.

Kona Grill Inc (KONA) , Zacks Research

With an average surprise of 410.4% over the trailing four quarters and expected earnings growth of 64.5% in 2012, this casual dining restaurant looks like a solid pick for growth-seeking investors. The company is presently a Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy).

Stupendous First Quarter

Kona Grill reported impressive first quarter results with EPS increasing 1400% year-over-year to 13 cents, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 3 cents.

Restaurant sales for the quarter increased 8.6% year-over-year to $24.2 million, primarily led by a same-store sales growth of 8.7%. The improvement in same-store sales was driven by a 6.4% growth in guest traffic and a comparatively higher average guest check.

Top 6 Stocks to Buy for July

On the last day of June, which marked the end of the second quarter, positive European headlines drove the S&P 500 up 2.5%. This last-minute rally popped the major indices through their respective 50-day moving average lines, giving the bulls hope that enough buyers would emerge to keep the rally going.

But recent history does not support buyers who invest solely on the vagaries of European economic politics. Instead, investors should focus on U.S. markets for guidance, and the technical picture tells us that, for both the near and intermediate term, the bulls are not out of the woods.

Currently, stocks are somewhat overbought and due for a minor correction, but for the summer, they appear range-bound to roughly the lows and highs of June. Longer term, the bull is still in charge, so wise investors should respond to weakness as a buying opportunity.

This month’s emphasis is on stocks that should do well despite near-term market concerns. Here are your top stocks to buy for July:
