3 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Tuesday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Monday to qualify for the next dividend payment: H.B. Fuller (FUL - Get Report), Sensient Technologies (SXT - Get Report) and Wintrust Financial (WTFC - Get Report).

The three stocks received buy ratings from TheStreet Ratings.

H.B. Fuller

The chemical manufacturer reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $26.4 million, or 53 cents a share, an increase from $21.9 million, or 44 cents a share, in the fourth quarter of 2010.

H.B. Fuller also announced that it would acquire Forbo's industrial adhesive business in December. Of the acquisition, Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a Jan. 20 report that, "Our analysis shows Forbo to be highly accretive, adding $0.30-$0.40 in Year 2 (~'13), and most importantly, creating value (ROIC > WACC} in Year 3 (ROIC: 11.1%; WACC: 10%). However, with demand in core N. American and European markets tepid, housing/construction demand unlikely to recover meaningfully in '12 and Fuller's '12 guidance based on EUR/USD of $1.38 (vs 1.29 today, implying $0.04 downside to guidance), we see limited ability for Fuller to exceed its guidance in '12."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1%

Rated "A+ (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's fourth-quarter gross profit margin was basically the same from a year ago.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $32.80. The stock closed Friday at $29.97.
