Today I profile five stocks that report quarterly results this week:
Reading the Table
OV/UN Valued: 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: 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: Price at which to enter a GTC limit order to sell on strength.
Reporting after the close on Tuesday: Disney (DIS - Get Report) ($64.80) set an all-time high at $64.85 on Friday as the mouse-house bubble inflates. Disney is well above its 200-day simple moving average at $52.76, which reflects the risk of reversion to the mean. The 200-day has been tested in each of the past two years. The weekly chart profile is positive but extremely overbought with the five-week modified moving average at $59.92. My monthly value level is $59.82 with a weekly pivot at $63.15. Whole Foods Market (WFM - Get Report) ($91.46) set its all-time high at $101.86 on Oct. 5. The weekly chart stays positive on a close this week above its five-week MMA at $88.15. My monthly value level is $85.91 with a weekly pivot at $90.60 and the 200-day SMA at $91.87.
