Macerich

The real estate investment trust reported last month fourth-quarter net income of $162.1 million, or $1.23 a share, which increased from year-earlier earnings of $23.6 million, or 18 cents.

"With near-term funding needs now addressed, MAC's key downside risk is its ability to drive occupancy and rent growth, particularly in its core CA and AZ markets," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a Feb. 7 report.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.9%

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

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth decreased 2.66% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $63.70. The stock closed Wednesday at $55.57 and has increased 9.82% year to date.






Maxim Integrated

The circuits manufacturer reported last month second-quarter earnings of $88.1 million, or 29 cents a share, which fell from year-earlier profit of $133.4 million, or 44 cents.

Regarding Maxim's earnings, Cantor Fitzgerald analysts wrote in a Jan. 27 report that, "Although this certainly is a small speed bump, we believe that MXIM's (and the Analog sector's) signs of rebound, bright secular growth prospects, and rich dividend yield, make it an analog bellwether that should be owned."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.2%

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

Maxim Integrated is extremely liquid. Its Quick Ratio is 2.80, which demonstrates that it can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the second quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 5.01% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $34.07. The stock closed Wednesday at $27.66 and has risen 6.22% year to date.
