10 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- These stocks go ex-dividend Friday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Thursday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Ford (F), ConAgra Foods (CAG), Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Texas Instruments (TXN), Baytex Energy (BTE), Eldorado Gold (EGO), Enterprise Products Partners (EPD), Eaton Vance (EV), Alliant Energy (LNT) and Oneok (OKE).

Each of the stocks received buy ratings from TheStreet Ratings.

Ford

The carmaker is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Friday. Analysts, on average, anticipates earnings of 25 cents a share on revenue of $32.35 billion.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts anticipate fourth-quarter EPS of 29 cents.

"While the focus on short-term details should be intense, we believe many will either miss or choose to ignore the massive ongoing structural improvements at Ford including: 1) a five-year track record of consistent price discipline; 2) a product renaissance that is about to hit its sixth year, lap itself with the intro of the all-new Fusion, and further bolster pricing; 3) consistent best-in-class product refresh rates; 4) three years of market share gains in the US; 5) the globalization of product platforms; 6) $21bn+ of debt paid down in the last two years; 7) a landmark deal with the UAW to remove the uncertainty of retiree healthcare liabilities in 2007; 8) the successful support of Ford Motor Credit in tough times over the last four years, that has turned out to be very profitable; 9) a burgeoning recovery in the US sales cycle; and 10) a structural shift in corporate culture that now strives to remain ahead of the competition and not just improve on the past," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a report on Thursday.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.6%

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

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 437.39% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $14.56. Shares closed Wednesday at $12.93.
