Recreation Stocks for the Fourth of July

Tickers in this article: BC ELY PII POOL RGR
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Fourth of July holiday almost always includes a family picnic. In my earlier post today, I profiled seven alcoholic beverage stocks that accompany an adult picnic. A holiday also often includes recreational activities, either at the party or before.

The leisure and recreation products industry is in the consumer-discretionary sector, but to many of us, these companies provide products and services we feel we must have in our everyday lives. The consumer-discretionary sector is 16.1% overvalued with the leisure and recreation products industry 31.6% overvalued.

In my article on Tuesday, I gave the consumer-discretionary sector an equal-weight rating, and today I provide buy-and-trade profiles for five stocks in the recreation industry.

Among the five recreation stocks I profile today, one is undervalued and four are overvalued. All have hold ratings according to ValuEngine. All had gains over the last 12 months between 13.7% and 47.6%. All are projected to move sideways to down over the next 12 months. Two have 12-month trailing price-to-earnings ratios above 20.

Reading the Table

OV / UN Valued - The stocks with a red number are undervalued by this percentage. Those with a black number are overvalued by that percentage according to ValuEngine.

VE Rating - A "1-Engine" rating is a Strong Sell, a "2-Engine" rating is a Sell, a "3-Engine" rating is a Hold, a "4-Engine" rating is a Buy and a "5-Engine" rating is a Strong Buy.

Last 12-Month Return (%) - Stocks with a Red number declined by that percentage over the last twelve months. Stocks with a Black number increased by that percentage.

Forecast 1-Year Return - Stocks with a Red number are projected to decline by that percentage over the next twelve months. Stocks with a Black number in the Table are projected to move higher by that percentage over the next twelve months.
