Best Buy, Gamestop Shares Biggest Losers After Earnings

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- On Monday through Wednesday I presented my buy-and-trade guidelines for 11 stocks in the retail-whole sector that reported earnings this week. The clear message from these reports is that holiday spending could be weaker than expected. Share price declines from the day I profiled them to Thursday's closes show that four retailers declined in price by more than 5% including the biggest losers Best Buy ( BBY) and Gamestop ( GME). The three winners had price gains of 0.7% or less.

On Monday, I wrote Best Buy, Home Depot Headline Tuesday's Earnings and the first of the headline stocks slumped while the second moved to a new high then faded.

On Tuesday, I wrote Deere, Lowes Headline Wednesday's Earnings and the first of the headline stocks was an earnings winner that rebounded to its 200-day simple moving average then faded. The second of the headline stocks traded lower.

On Wednesday, I wrote Target, Dollar Tree and Buckle Up for Earnings Thursday and all three stocks in the headline traded lower following their earnings reports premarket on Thursday.

Among the 11 stocks I am profiling today only one is undervalued by 7.8%. I show that 10 are overvalued by 7.6% to 47.3%. All 11 stocks were buy rated pre-earnings, and all remain buy rated post earnings. One has a loss of 20% over the last 12 months while eight have gains of 24.6% to 237.7%. Two are below their 200-day SMAs while nine are above, which reflects the risk of an reversion to the mean.
