NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The seven companies I am profiling today were taken to the woodshed for various reasons as the Dow Industrial Average attempts to achieve a new all-time closing high above its Oct. 9, 2007 all-time closing high at 14,164.53, and its intraday all-time high at 14,198.10.
Meanwhile, Apple (AAPL), which has been taken to the woodshed several times since September's all-time high at $705.07. Apple bottomed at $435.00 on Jan. 25 and emerged from behind the woodshed to a high of $484.94 on Feb. 11, filling the gap to the Jan.15 low at $483.38. Many market technicians say that when a stock experiences a price gap up or down that those gaps are almost always filled once a stock tops, or sets a tradable bottom.
Apple ($467.90) still has a buy rating, is 19.4% undervalued with a trailing 12 months price-to-earnings ratio at 10.7. The weekly chart profile remains extremely oversold with the five-week modified moving average at $489.81. My annual value level remains $421.05 with a semiannual pivot at $470.21, which was tested again on Tuesday, and annual risky level at $510.64.
