NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Last week I profiled nine companies pre-earnings in Tiffany, Hewlett-Packard Headline Tuesday's Earnings Reports. Buy rated Tiffany (TIF - Get Report) offered sparkling earnings and was the biggest post-earnings winner ending last week up 9.9% from its Nov. 22 close to its Black Friday close. Country store and eatery Cracker Barrel (CBRL - Get Report) beat EPS estimates, but cracked lower by 7.2% on decelerating same store sales.
Among the nine stocks were seven consumer-oriented stocks five of which have buy ratings according to www.ValuEngine.com. These five gained between 4.4% and 9.9% from their Nov. 22 closes to their Friday close. The buy rated names are in the retail-wholesale sector which is 31.6% overvalued but boasts an overweight rating as 78.7% of the 343 stocks in the sector are buy rated.
We enter the last month of 2013 with an intense ValuEngine valuation warning as 86.3% of all stocks overvalued including 59.3% overvalued by 20% or more. All 16 sectors are overvalued 15 by double-digit percentages. There are 13 sectors overvalued by more than 24% or which nine are overvalued by 30.7% to 36.9%.
In this environment all five of the major averages set new all-time or multi-year intra-day highs on Friday; 16,174.51 Dow Industrials, 1813.55 S&P 500, 4069.70 Nasdaq, 7273.81 Dow transports and 1147.00 Russell 2000. All five have positive but extremely overbought weekly chart profiles with 12x3x3 weekly slow stochastic readings well above the 80.00 threshold with readings between 90.61 and 95.43.
