6 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

Stocks in this article: PFE COKE AWK CLMT NSC PAA

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- These stocks go ex-dividend Wednesday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Tuesday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Pfizer (PFE - Get Report), Coca-Cola Bottling (COKE - Get Report), American Water Works (AWK - Get Report), Calumet Specialty Products (CLMT - Get Report), Norfolk Southern (NSC - Get Report) and Plains All American Pipeline (PAA - Get Report).

Each of these stocks received a buy rating from TheStreet Ratings.


The drugmaker Tuesday reported fourth-quarter adjusted earnings of $3.86 billion, or 50 cents a share, topping the estimates of analysts by 3 cents.

"Nothing in the qtr or guidance changes our positive outlook," UBS analysts wrote in a report on Tuesday. "Mgt. continues to execute well, including the pipeline (recent approvals of Axitinib and Prevnar 13 Adult), cost cutting, share buyback, as well as diversified performance on many fronts. We continue to see value here and see the next catalysts as Tofa and the strategic actions for Animal Health and Nutrition."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 4.1%

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

Pfizer has strong liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.61, which demonstrates an ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 2.75% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $25.12. The stock closed Monday at $21.58.
