Dow Components, Boeing and DuPont Headline Sell Rated Stocks

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The nine stocks I am profiling today have sell ratings according to and have recently set all-time highs or multi-year highs and are overvalued. Two are components of the Dow Industrial Average.

It is a prudent investment policy to book profits or at least to pare back positions in sell-rated stocks to your initial dollar investment in a stock market where 77.6% of all stocks are overvalued, 44.5% by 20% or more.

For example, if you invested $5,000 in a stock and today that investment is worth $10,000 you have doubled your money. Selling half the position locks in a significant profit and you keep your initial $5,000 investment.

One stock is in the aerospace sector. This sector is 25.5% overvalued and rated underweight.

Two stocks are in the autos-tires-trucks sector. This sector is 32.1 overvalued and rated underweight.

Four stocks are in the basic materials sector. This sector is 1.2% undervalued and rated underweight.

One is in the computer and technology sector. This sector is 26.5% overvalued and rated overweight.

One is in the transportation sector. This sector is 26.4% overvalued and rated 'avoid-source-of-funds'.

All nine stocks profiled in this post are overvalued with seven overvalued by 25% or more. All nine have gained by double-digit percentages over the last 12 months, seven by 22.7% to 172.6%. All are trading above their 200-day simple moving average, which reflects the risk of reversion to the mean.
