Limited Brands

The clothing retailer is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Wednesday. Analysts, on average, anticipate earnings of $1.46 a share on revenue of $3.48 billion.

"We are increasingly compelled by productivity enhancement opportunities and the likelihood of meaningful international expansion," Credit Suisse analysts wrote in a Feb. 2 report. "Our concerns regarding a slowing of comps are becoming more challenging to justify, given outperformance as the company approaches peak productivity. We will look for upcoming comps to provide validation of the view that momentum could persist even as the company exceeds prior peak productivity, particularly at Victoria's Secret."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.2%

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

Limited Brands has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.53, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth decreased 74.54% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $57.11. The stock closed Friday at $46.50 and has risen 15.24% year to date.






Avista

The energy company reported on Wednesday fourth-quarter earnings of $24.6 million, or 42 cents a share, down from year-ago earnings of $25.7 million, or 45 cents.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 4.6%

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

Avista has very weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.40, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 5.82% from the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $30.17. The stock closed Friday at $25.59 and has fallen slightly year to date.
