Humana and Molson Coors Earnings on Tap Wednesday

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Today's buy-and-trade earnings previews focus on eight companies in six sectors including Humana (HUM - Get Report) with eyes and ears to see and hear any news about the status of healthcare policy sales related to Obamacare, and from Molson Coors (TAP - Get Report) to measure consumers' demand for beer.

The six sectors cover two stocks each from the consumer discretionary and oils-energy sector, and one each in these sectors; business services, computer and technology, consumer staples and medical.

The ValuEngine valuation warning remains in place with 77.7% of all stocks being overvalued, 46.8% by 20% or more, with 15 of 16 sectors overvalued by double-digit percentages, 11 by 20.7% to 26.9%.

The business services sector is 25.5% overvalued with an equal-weight rating. Of the 232 stocks 62.5% in this sector have hold ratings.

The computer and technology sector is 24.1% overvalued with an overweight rating. Of the 1149 stocks 50.5% in this sector have buy or strong buy ratings.

The consumer discretionary sector is 23.9% overvalued with an equal-weight rating. Of the 400 stocks 83.3% in this sector have hold ratings.

The consumer staples sector is 18.3% overvalued with an overweight rating. Of the 261 stocks 49.4% in this sector have buy or strong buy ratings.

The medical sector is 20.9% overvalued with an equal-weight rating. Of the 780 stocks 56.8% in this sector have hold ratings. P/>The oils-energy sector is 9.8% overvalued with an underweight rating. Of the 552 stocks 31.7% in this sector have sell or strong sell ratings.

Two of the eight stocks in today's table have buy ratings and six have hold ratings. None are undervalued, while three are overvalued by 26.1% to 35.8%. All have gains over the last 12 months between 10.4% and 58.0%. Two stocks are below their 200-day simple moving averages and six are well above, which reflects the risk of reversion to the mean.
