Consider These Dow Components for Your Stock Allocation

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.

General Electric ($27.05) set a multi-year high at $27.19 on Nov. 7. This stock has a positive but overbought weekly chart profile with a monthly value level at $24.69 with a semiannual pivot at $26.68 and quarterly risky level at $28.47.

Home Depot (HD) ($76.18) set its multi-year high at $81.56 back on May 22. The stock has been moving sideways to down since then and is above its 50-day and 200-day SMAs at $75.73 and $74.51.

IBM ($183.07) has been below its 200-day SMA since July 19 and traded to a 2013 low at $172.57 on Oct. 17. IBM is the only undervalued Dow component and it stayed below its 50-day SMA at $183.80 on Tuesday. My annual value level is $171.70 with a monthly risky level at $184.92 and the 200-day SMA at $196.21.
