Dollar General, Joseph A Bank Headline Earnings

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Today's buy-and-trade earnings previews focus on nine retail-oriented companies that report quarterly results on Thursday including discounters Dollar General  (DG) and Big Lots  (BIG), and men's clothier Joseph A Bank  (JOSB) who is in a bidding war with Men's Wearhouse  (MW).

The nine stocks include seven from the retail-wholesale sector, and one each from the consumer discretionary and consumer staples sectors.

The consumer discretionary sector is 35.5% overvalued with an equal-weight rating. Of the 393 stocks 82.7% in this sector have hold ratings.

The consumer staples sector is 26.1% overvalued with an overweight rating. Of the 256 stocks 52.7% in this sector have buy or strong buy ratings.

The retail-wholesale sector is 31.9% overvalued with an overweight rating. Of the 343 stocks 82.5% in this sector have buy or strong buy ratings.

All seven retail-wholesale stocks in today's table have buy ratings and the other two consumer stocks have hold ratings. One stock is slightly undervalued and four are overvalued by 20.8% to 29.8%. All have double-digit gains over the last 12 months between 15.8% and 59.8%. One is below its 200-day SMA while eight are above their 200-day SMAs which reflect the risk of reversion to the mean.
