Plus, Morgan Stanley becomes a 'strong buy' and Apple is still waiting for a catalyst.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL We wanted to end the week looking at the broad S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX). First we have the strongest names in the S&P 500 based on our proprietary algorithm. The graph breaks down the five-day trend to one day, showing the shift between sectors.

Another interesting name to move to a Strong Buy (or 5 rating) is Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS). It is not even in the top 50 strongest names in the S&P 500 as seen in the heat map below, however, it's worth a mention.

Here we have a representation of all five of our ratings displayed via a heat map. This is a good graphical representation of how our algorithm grades widely-held S&P 500 names.

Lastly, everyone is panicking about Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). We mentioned Tuesday not to own this name but rather to wait for a catalyst. And we offered two possible catalysts -- a rating increase from Strong Sell to at least a Hold (3 rating), or an Oversold level. At this juncture it looks like we wait for an Oversold alert. Many of us love Apple products, but don't confuse great products for great valuation.
