XOM_Nov 2013 You can see why Buffett recently bought XOM. Note the dotted line on the Value-Line. XOM has “underperformed” the general market for the past five years.

This is the simple Golden Key which the great Emmet Fox recommends. It may sound too absurdly simple, it may sound like voodoo, but before you sneer at it and ignore it, first try it. I’ve used it many times and I can tell you that it works. The concept of the Golden Key is probably worth years of subscriptions to Dow Theory Letters. Use the Golden Key.
