Looking for a Like-Minded Professional Who Manages Money ?
   – James F. Taulman

One question that I am regularly asked is – “Can you recommend a professional who manages money using the same methodology which your services are based upon?”

Over the years, there has been just a handful of these professionals who have stood out from the rest, and who I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for professional guidance.

One of them is Jack Elvestrom and here’s why… 



Chevron (CVX), CIGNA (CI), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Honeywell (HON), Madison Square Garden (MSG) and Merck (MRK) will release earnings before the open.

Regardless of market conditions, I am always preparing a watch list of high-ranked leaders which are building bullish technical bases.

I ran my routine stock screens this morning, yet did not find any new stocks to add to our watch lists.

Thought I would share my personal notes from those stock screens.
