Healthcare Services Group

The housekeeping company to nursing homes and other facilities reported earlier this month fourth-quarter earnings of $10.5 million, or 16 cents a share, an increase from year-ago earnings of $9.1 million, or 14 cents.

"Revenue growth of 24% was easily the strongest we've seen from the company," Morgan Keegan analysts wrote in a Feb. 8 report. "Management reported a very robust 14% growth rate for Housekeeping and a stunning 50%+ annual gain for Dietary. Given HCSG's recurring revenue model, we believe this growth sets the stage for higher earnings going forward."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.2%

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

Healthcare Services Group is extremely liquid. Its Quick Ratio is 4.42, which shows the company can meet its short-term cash needs.

The specialty mineral company reported earlier this month fourth-quarter earnings of $19.6 million, or $1.11 a share, up from year-ago earnings of $15.7 million, or 87 cents.

"The valuations and market values for cyclical names and the chemical space generally have appreciated over the past eight weeks. MTX's valuation remains attractive on a relative and on an absolute basis," JPMorgan analysts wrote in a Feb. 6 report.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 0.3%

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