NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Nine companies were taken to the woodshed following earnings disappointments.
Shares of Boeing (BA) fell 11.6% after it reported its fourth-quarter results. The Dow component had a sell rating, according to www.ValuEngine.com, and so the negative reaction to its earnings wasn't a surprise. Mattel (MAT) reported disappointing holiday toy sales, and shares of the maker of Barbie Dolls fell 13.9%.
Apple Inc. (AAPL) ($512.59, down 6.1% since Jan. 24) beat earnings per share estimates by 46 cents, reporting earnings of $14.50 after-hours on Jan. 27.
Apple traded to a post-earnings low at $493.55 last Friday, staying above its 200-day simple moving average at $486.09. The weekly chart is negative with the stock below its five-week modified moving average at $528.74 with declining stochastics and its 200-week SMA at $434.64.Apple had a buy rating pre-earnings, but now has a hold rating. It's 4.7% overvalued with a gain of 12% over the last 12 months. The upside is a return to my annual pivot at $517.05 with a monthly risky level at $540.05 and an annual risky level at $586.06. (AMZN) ($346.45, down 9.9% since Jan. 29) missed EPS estimates by 20 cents as it reported earnings of 51 cents a share after-hours last Thursday. Amazon traded to a post-earnings low at $337.73 on Wednesday, staying above its 200-day SMA at $321.29. The weekly chart is negative with the stock below its five-week MMA at $375.02 with declining stochastics and its 200-week SMA at $225.26. Amazon had a hold rating pre-earnings, and on weakness has been upgraded to buy. The stock is 62.5% overvalued with a gain of 29.8% over the last 12 months. My annual value level is $334.95 with semiannual pivots at $351.24 and $339.11 and with quarterly and monthly risky levels at $402.56 and $407.77.
