Noble Energy

The energy company is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 9. Analysts, on average, anticipate earnings of $1.15 a share on revenue of $945.9 million.

"In a recent filing with Israel's Securities Authority, Noble Energy (NBL, Outperform/$95.91) and its Israeli partners revised upward the Leviathan gross resource estimate to 20 Tcf from 16 Tcf and revised downward the estimated oil in place (NBL holds a ~40% working interest)," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in a Jan. 17 report. "We view the former as meaningful as it adds $1.33 to our modeled NAV. The latter has no impact on our model as we have assumed nearly 100% of the Leviathan offtake will be gas."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 0.9%

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

Noble Energy has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.92, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 12.54% from the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $121.33. The stock closed Tuesday at $100.67.

Webster Financial

The bank reported fourth-quarter net income last month of $39.6 million, or 43 cents a share, an increase from prior-year earnings of $24.3 million, or 29 cents.

"Investments in the fee-based platform are expected to yield greater returns in FY12, which could represent upside potential to our model," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a report on Jan. 19.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 0.9%

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

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $25.48. The stock closed at $21.20 on Tuesday.
