Today, we look at seven companies in six sectors; two from the oils-energy sector and one each in these sectors; basic materials, business services, construction, consumer discretionary and medical.
The ValuEngine valuation warning remains in place with 78.1% of all stocks being overvalued, 48.3% by 20% or more, and 15 of 16 sectors are overvalued by double-digit percentages, 11 by 21.4% to 27.4%.
The basic materials sector is 2.6% undervalued with an underweight rating. Of the 399 stocks in this sector 58.9% have sell or strong sell ratings.
The business services sector is 25.7% overvalued with an equal-weight rating. Of the 236 stocks in this sector 61.4% have hold ratings.
The construction sector is 17.4% overvalued with an underweight rating. Of the 158 stocks in this sector 55.7% have sell or strong sell ratings.
The consumer discretionary sector is 27.4% overvalued with an equal-weight rating. Of the 400 stocks in this sector 83% have hold ratings.

None of the seven stocks in today's table have buy ratings. Six have hold ratings and one has a sell rating. Only one stock is undervalued by 30.3%, while one is overvalued by 51.7%. One is down 48.1% over the last 12 months, while four have gains between 20.4% and 67.0%. Two stocks are below their 200-day simple moving averages, one is just above its 200-day and four are well above, which reflects the risk of reversion to the mean.
