Overall the construction sector is no bargain as the sector is 13.2% overvalued according to www.ValuEngine.com. There are 160 stocks in the sector with only 11 buy rated stocks. Even after the upgrades I present this morning, we show 39 sell rated stocks and 29 strong sell rated stocks. With 42.5% of stocks in sell categories, but given the upgrades shown today, I rate the construction sector an underweight up from avoid-source of funds.
