Unum

Unum provides disability insurance. The company is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 6. Analysts, on average, expect earnings of 75 cents a share on $2.59 billion in revenue, according to Thomson Reuters.

Morgan Stanley analysts noted in a Jan. 20 report they are anticipating a write-down in Unum's long-term care area "reflecting deteriorating claim rates, rising persistency and pressure from lower interest rates."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.8%

Rated "B (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's third-quarter gross profit margin decreased from the prior year.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 6% from the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $26.26. Shares closed Tuesday at $23.32.






Mesabi Trust

Mesabi Trust is an owner of mining rights.

Mesabi declared a fourth-quarter dividend of 76 cents a share, payable on Feb. 20. Davenport & Co. analysts said they expected a dividend of 93 cents.

"Despite the shortfall, there is no reason to change our distribution and EPS estimates of $2.82/sh for FY'13," the analysts wrote in a Jan. 17 report.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 9%

Rated "B- (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's third-quarter gross profit margin was about the same as it was a year ago.

Mesabi has average liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.28, which shows that it can technically meet its short-term cash needs.
