NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- There was quite a long list of companies that I profiled pre-earnings last week, and overall the results were mixed. About two-thirds of the companies beat on earnings per share including the biggest winners Marvel Tech (MRVL) and Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR).
On a price performance basis, two-thirds of the stocks profiled ended last week lower in price from the day I provided my buy-and-trade guidelines on either a revenue miss or weak guidance.
On Friday I provided a scorecard for the 11 pure retailers that reported quarterly results Tuesday through the premarket on Thursday in Best Buy, Gamestop Shares Biggest Losers After Earnings. All of these stocks have buy ratings but only three ended Thursday above the price on the day of my previews. Many companies gave a cautious outlook on holiday spending.
Among the 12 stocks in today's table, four have buy ratings, six have hold ratings and two have sell ratings. Since reporting their quarterly results and at Friday's closes, five traded higher and three of these gained between 8.3% and 9.6%. Among the seven to lose ground three lost between 7.2% and 16.5%. One stock is undervalued by 12.9%, while six are overvalued by 22.1% to 67.2%. One stock is down 32% over the last 12 months while eight have gains between 22.9% and 577.0%. Three are below their 200-day SMAs while nine are above, which reflects the risk of a reversion to the mean.
