    VALUATION WARNING: Our models find that overvaluation is at levels typically seen when market pullbacks occur. Overvalued stocks now make up 77% of our stocks assigned a valuation and 35% of those equities are calculated to be overvalued by 20% or more. ALL sectors are again calculated to be overvalued--eleven by double digits.
