Liability Adjusted Cash Flow Yield: 6.82%

Dividend Yield: 3.52%

Dividend Acid Test: Pass

TheStreet Ratings' Grade: Hold (C+) -- Nucor's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2011 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter vs. same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing net income growth but not when comparing revenue growth. Nucor has strong liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.80, which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged, increasing by only 3.25% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
