NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The transportation sector is overvalued by 24.4% according to www.ValuEngine.com and with 74.3% of the 179 stocks in this sector rated sell or strong sell the sector continues to have an 'avoid-source of funds' rating. Even so the eight transportation stocks I have been profiling as a group can be traded using my buy-and-trade strategy.In my last post covering these stocks on Aug. 14 I wrote Buy TravelCenters as the Economy Improves I noted that all eight had sell ratings and today six still have sell ratings, while two have been upgraded to hold. For the record TravelCenters of America (TA - Get Report) ($7.55) still has a buy rating and is trading between its Aug. 27 low at $7.35 and its 200-day simple moving average at $8.89. My semiannual value level is $7.18 with a weekly pivot at $7.78 and semiannual risky level at $9.32.
