11 New Stocks Rated by TheStreet

Stock quotes in this article: AERL, BWC, BALT, BDE, FURX, HPP, MOTR, PEOP, QUAD, TSLA, VPG

NEW YORK ( TheStreet Ratings) -- Each trading day TheStreet Ratings' stock model reviews more than 5,000 unrated common stocks available on the major U.S. exchanges for potential investment recommendations based on the latest available financial results and trading activity.

TheStreet Ratings released initial ratings on 11 U.S. common stocks in the first two weeks of August. Six of these stocks start out at 'Sell' and five earned a recommendation of 'Hold' from our stock model.

TheStreet Ratings' model coverage of Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) began on August 3rd with an initial recommendation of 'Sell'. This company has proven that it can build ultra-cool electric vehicles that will turn heads including its original "Roadster" and new "Model S" coming in 2012. What Tesla Motors has yet to show is the ability to turn a profit as of the second quarter of 2011.

In a period described by Tesla Chairman Elon Musk as "the best quarter in Tesla's history", the company's record net loss of $58.9 million exceeded record gross revenue of $58.2 million. Third and fourth quarter revenue may come in light as potential buyers wait on Model S reviews in 2012.

Also starting out at 'Sell' are Baltic Trading Ltd (BALT), Black Diamond Inc (BDE), Hudson Pacific Pptys Inc (HPP), Motricity Inc (MOTR), and Quad/Graphics Inc (QUAD).

Coverage of Asia Entertainment & Resources Ltd (AERL) began on August 9th with an initial recommendation of 'Hold'. $21.2 million of Asia Entertainment's $55.2 million in second quarter revenue flowed down to the bottom line as profit from its MGM Grand-Macau and Galaxy Star World Casino-Macau VIP gaming promotion operations.

The company has enough confidence in its earnings to announce a $0.10 per share semi-annual dividend and the formula the company intends to use to calculate future dividend payments of 15% of non-GAAP net income less the prior 6-month dividend divided by outstanding shares.

Additional new 'Hold' recommendations include Babcock & Wilcox Co (BWC), Furiex Pharmaceuticals Inc (FURX), Peoples Federal Bancshs Inc (PEOP) and Vishay Precision Group Inc (VPG).

Stock model grades of A+ down to B- equate to 'Buy' recommendations with grades C+ down to C- meaning 'Hold', and D+ and lower signaling a 'Sell'.
