NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- An analysis of highly-rated large and mid-cap investment companies by TheStreet Ratings highlights some solid picks - including two dividend plays -- among a group that is not universally loved by analysts.
The following 12 U.S. investment companies have market capitalizations of at least $1 billion and are rated B-minus (Buy) or higher by TheStreet Ratings. Most have grown their revenue over the past year, in-line with the overall market recovery. The group is in ascending order and by upside potential based on the median price target among analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.
