NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- As the third quarter earnings season winds down it's time to focus on retailers found in many shopping malls around the country. The nine retailers I profile today sell apparel, shoes sporting goods, home furnishings or computer games. All nine stocks have buy ratings according to www.ValuEngine.com and seven are trading above their 200-day simple moving averages.
On Monday I profiled eight larger retailers in Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot Report Earnings This Week. Each of these stocks are also buy rated and Home Depot (HD - Get Report) reported their quarterly results pre-market on Tuesday. The home improvement giant comfortably beat earnings estimates on both the top and bottom line. The stock set a new multi-year high at $64.44 in reaction to this report, so the stock continues its mojo run with an overbought weekly chart. As long as closes are above my monthly pivot at $62.76 the upside is to its all time bubble top of $70 set in April 2000.
All nine stocks I profile today are in the retail-wholesale sector which is 4.3% overvalued according to ValuEngine. Apparel and shore retailers are 3.5% undervalued and miscellaneous/diversified stores are 11.2% overvalued.
