Wal-Mart and Tesoro Corporation are both overbought.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL It's that time of the week when brings you our list of the strongest S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) companies by sector.

Before we talk about the strongest names in the S&P 500, let us first tell you about's proprietary rating system. This algorithm does not use the standard MACD and moving averages; we feel that looking at the same technical data provides little edge over other market participants. This algorithm has been used for the last 13 years running institutional money. The ratings are as follows: Strong Sell (1), Sell (2), Neutral (3), Buy (4), and Strong Buy (5).

The chart below references the one to five day trend of the strongest 20 names in the S&P 500 by sector. Please note that "strongest" does not mean percentage of return or performance.

Currently, Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) and Tesoro Corporation (NYSE:TSO) are both overbought.
