Adobe, Lululemon and Vera Bradley Earnings Ahead

Stocks in this article: ADBE CIEN HOV LULU MW VRA ZQK

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Today's buy-and-trade earnings previews focus on seven companies in four sectors that report quarterly results beginning with the provider of women's accessories Vera Bradley (VRA) afterhours on Wednesday, the provider of yoga-inspired athletic sportswear Lululemon (LULU) premarket on Thursday and publishing software provider Adobe Systems (ADBE) in the afterhours on Thursday.

The seven stocks include four from the retail-wholesale sector, two from the computer and technology sector and one each from the construction and consumer discretionary sectors.

The computer and technology sector is 29.9% overvalued with an overweight rating. Of the 1140 stocks 51.7% in this sector have buy or strong buy ratings. The construction sector is 16.5% overvalued with an underweight rating. Of the 156 stocks 56.4% in this sector have sell or strong sell ratings.

The consumer discretionary sector is 28.3% overvalued with an equal-weight rating. Of the 393 stocks 83.2% in this sector have hold ratings. The retail-wholesale sector is 24.7% overvalued with an overweight rating. Of the 343 stocks 82.2% in this sector have buy or strong buy ratings.

Two of the seven stocks profiled today have buy ratings, four have hold ratings and one has a sell rating. One stock is undervalued by 6.7% and four are overvalued by 27.4% to 82.8%. One stock has lost 5.1% over the last 12 months, and four have gains between 49.3% and $109%. Two are below their 200-day simple moving averages while five are above their 200-day SMAs which reflect the risk of reversion to the mean. 

Adobe Systems ($55.44) set a new all-time intra-day high at $57.99 on Nov. 14 and weakness since than has held above its 50-day SMA at $54.26. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of 19 cents a share in the afterhours on Thursday. The hold rated provider of publishing software is 81.7% overvalued and has gained 55.1% over the last 12 months and is well above its 200-day SMA at $47.51. My annual value level is $48.74 with quarterly and monthly pivots at $55.39 and $55.66 and weekly risky level at $58.39.
