Earnings, It's All About the Bottom Line

Reading the Table

OV/UN Valued: The stocks with a red number are undervalued by this percentage. Those with a black number are overvalued by that percentage according to ValuEngine.

VE Rating: A "1-engine" rating is a strong sell, a "2-engine" rating is a sell, a "3-engine" rating is a hold, a "4-engine" rating is a buy and a "5-engine" rating is a strong buy.

Last 12-Month Return (%): Stocks with a red number declined by that percentage over the last 12 months. Stocks with a black number increased by that percentage.

Forecast 1-Year Return: Stocks with a red number are projected to decline by that percentage over the next 12 months. Stocks with a black number in the Table are projected to move higher by that percentage over the next 12 months.

Value Level: The price at which to enter a GTC limit order to buy on weakness. The letters mean; W-weekly, M-monthly, Q-quarterly, S-semiannual and A-annual.

Pivot: A level between a value level and risky level that should be a magnet during the time frame noted.

Risky Level: is the price at which to enter a GTC limit order to sell on strength.

Texas Instruments (TXN) ($27.81): Releases their earnings report after the close on Monday. The stock has a buy rating according to ValuEngine with a reasonable P/E. TXN is below its 200-day simple moving average at $30.17. The stock traded down from a 2012 high at $34.24 on March 27 to a 2012 low at $26.06 on July 17. The weekly chart is negative with the 200-week SMA at $27.01. Investors and traders should employ a buy-and-trade strategy between the value level and risky level.

Stocks reporting earnings pre-market on Tuesday

DuPont (DD) ($49.34): Has a buy rating according to ValuEngine with a favorable P/E and is below its 200-day SMA at $50.45. The stock set its 2012 high at $53.98 on May 1 and set a second half 2012 low at $46.16 on July 11. The weekly chart profile is negative with the 200-week SMA at $41.67. Investors and traders should reduce positions on strength to my monthly pivot at $50.45 and then employ a buy-and-trade strategy between the value level and risky level.

3M (MMM) ($92.94): Has a hold rating according to ValuEngine with a reasonable P/E. The stock is above its 200-day SMA at $88.84. MMM set its 2012 high at $95.46 on Oct. 8. The weekly chart profile is positive but overbought with the 200-week SMA at $80.18, but shifts to negative on a close this week below its five-week MMA at $92.88. Investors and traders should book profits on strength to my monthly pivot at $93.03 and then employ a buy-and-trade strategy between the value level and risky level.
