McGrath RentCorp

McGrath RentCorp is a business-to-business rental company..

"We believe strength in MGRC's non-legacy businesses should result in earnings performance that likely exceeds our and consensus estimate of $0.43," KeyBanc Capital Markets analysts wrote in a Jan. 23 report. "Further, we believe its Adler Tanks business should remain solid in 2012 and act as the primary earnings driver. Although we believe management is likely to take a conservative approach relative to 2012 EPS guidance, we expect the range to at least bracket and more likely exceed current consensus of $2.03."

The company is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 22. Analysts, on average, expect profit of 43 cents a share on $83.25 million in revenue.

Shares of McGrath hit a 52-week high on Monday of $31.88. The stock's 52-week low of $21.61 was reached on Sept. 6.

Sturm Ruger

Sturm Ruger makes firearms.

"We believe RGR has been spot on in recent years, with respect to being early to several key categories and being able to execute well in the wake of developing industry leading manufacturing efficiency," KeyBanc Capital Markets analyst wrote in a report on Jan. 19. "RGR products also continue to take share in several categories, specifically in concealed carry. In our view, capacity expansion has been a focus of management during 2011 and we expect to see more capacity coming on line during 2012."

The company is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 20. Analysts, on average, expect profit of 46 cents a share on revenue of $81.56 million.

Shares of Sturm Ruger hit a 52-week high of $40.25 on Monday. The stock's 52-week low of $14.79 was set on Jan. 31.
