Only two of the nine stocks in today's table have buy ratings. Five have hold ratings and two have sell ratings. My headline stocks are undervalued by 7.2% and 4.3%, while six are overvalued by 21.7% to 61.2%. One is down 38.0% over the last 12 months, while seven have gains between 22.6% and 643.4%. Only one stock is below its 200-day simple moving average with eight above which reflects the risk of reversion to the mean.
