A look at the overvalued/undervalued data shows that only three of the transportation stocks are overvalued, with Kansas City Southern (KSU) overvalued by 8.2%. The most undervalued is Overseas Shipholding (OSG) at 64.4% undervalued

There is one "1-Engine" Strong Sell-rated stock (OSG), 10 "3-Engine" Hold-rated stocks, 11 "4-Engine" Buy-rated stocks, and two "5-Engine" Strong Buy-rated stocks. There are three ratings changes for the airlines this morning.

We do not have a projection on the performance of OSG for the next 12 months, but all others are expected to be higher, led by UNP by 13.6% and United Parcel Service by 12.5%.

Ten of the 20 stocks have elevated price-to-earnings ratios of 15.1 to 23.4.
