Oracle Headlines Earnings this Week

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Today, I am profiling six companies that report quarterly results either after the close today, pre-market, or after the close on Thursday or pre-market on Friday. Three are in the computer & technology sector, one is a sell-rated home builder in the construction sector, and two are in the retail-wholesale sector.

Last week we received two conflicting consumer related economic releases, one a positive for the labor market, the other a negative on consumer sentiment. Both charts shown are courtesy of "dshort - Advisor Perspectives."

On the labor front, we now have a positive trend for weekly initial jobless claims, where the four-week moving average has declined below the recessionary 350,000 threshold, to 346,750.

If this trend continues the unemployment rate should begin to fall towards the 6.5% FOMC target, where QE3 and QE4 may begin to end. We will learn more about this from the FOMC this afternoon.



Last Friday, we learned that the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index fell to 71.8 in March, the lowest level in more than a year. It has been well below the neutral zone of 90 to 110 since the recession began at the end of 2007.

Looking at today's valuations, the computer and technology sector is 15.1% overvalued, the construction sector is 22.6% overvalued and the retail-wholesale sector is 16.3% overvalued.
