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.
