For today’s report I screened through the Tech Sector to find stocks in the wireless industry that are trading below $10 but above one buck. The nine stocks profiled today have complete ValuEngine data, but six of nine do not have P/E ratios.
The nine stocks that I profile today includes, Sprint Nextel (S) following the move by SoftBank of Japan to acquire a majority stake in the company.
At www.ValuEngine.com the Computer and Technology Sector includes some wireless stocks. Others are in the Utilities Sector. The Computer and Technology Sector is 5.4% overvalued with Utilities 10.7% overvalued.

Where to Buy and Where to Sell
A “Value Level” is a price at which buyers should add to positions on market price weakness. A “Risky Level” is a price at which sellers should reduce holdings on market price gains. A "Pivot" is a support or resistance (Value Level or Risky Level) that was violated in its time horizon, acting as a magnet during the remainder of that time horizon. These levels are calculated in weekly (W), monthly (M), quarterly (Q), semiannual (S) and annual (A) time horizons, based on the past nine closes in each time horizon. My theory is that the closes over a nine-year period are the summation of all bullish and bearish events for that market or specific stock. These levels are the most important element of my Buy and Trade Strategy.
Buy and Trade Guidelines
Investors should consider entering good until cancelled (GTC) orders to buy weakness to a value level, or to sell strength to a risky level.
