Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE:GCI) and Harley-Davidson, Inc. (NYSE:HOG)

Q: Hi Chip, What do you think about shorting these two (GCI and HOG) before earnings? Thanks J A: We do not make such trade recommendations based solely on earnings announcements although we recognize that such events can be major catalysts.  With respect to GCI, we have the stock in a Downtrend since 6/17 when we alerted subscribers at $3.89 - stock has since fallen 16%.  As for HOG, we issued a Downtrend alert on 5/13 after it failed that 200-day average test.  Harley is down 6% since that call was made.  SmarTrend is technically-oriented and thus we believe that the value of a stock represents the weighted average fundamental opinion of all market participants.
