Duke Energy

The energy company is scheduled to report fourth-quarter results on Feb. 16. Analysts, on average, expect earnings of 21 cents a share on revenue of $3.37 billion.

"We expect strong oil prices , positive for NMC, and stabilizing or even slightly higher power prices in Latin America to drive EBIT growth at Duke Energy International," Goldman Sachs analysts wrote in a Jan. 5 report. "DUK's Latin American assets should generate positive free cash flow given low capital spending, and any tax relief acts present an opportunity for DUK to 'repatriate' cash from its small overseas subsidiaries."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 4.7%

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

Duke Energy has very weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.68, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 3.53% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $25.41. The stock closed Monday at $21.44.






Broadcom

The semiconductor company was downgraded by Benchmark analysts to a hold from a buy on Monday.

Broadcom reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $254 million, or 45 cents a share, which fell from year-earlier earnings of $266 million, or 47 cents.

"Despite the lower revenues/profits, BRCM announced an increase to its quarterly dividend payment to $0.10 from $0.09, equating to a dividend yield of ~1.2%," Credit Suisse analysts wrote in a Feb. 1 report. "This marks the 2nd consecutive year that BRCM has increased its dividend since it began paying a dividend in 2010."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.1%

Rated "B (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's fourth-quarter gross profit margin remained about the same as a year ago.

Broadcom is extremely liquid. Its Quick Ratio is 4.74, which shows it can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholder's net worth increased 11.92% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $43.67. The stock closed Monday at $36.82.
