8 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: McDonald's (MCD - Get Report), Lockheed Martin (LMT - Get Report), Southwest Airlines (LUV - Get Report), L-3 Communications (LLL - Get Report), Loews (L), Sara Lee (SLE), Tyson Foods (TSN) and Wendy's (WEN).

Each of the stocks was rated buy at TheStreet Ratings.

McDonald's

The fast food chain earlier this month reported 6.7% global comparable sales growth in January.

"January's +6.7% global comp was higher than our/Street estimates of 5.9%," Oppenheimer analysts wrote in a Feb. 8 report. "Trends were solid across all regions driven in part by new product buzz (like Chicken McBites in the US) and favorable weather patterns. We keep our 2012E/2013E EPS estimates of $5.73/$6.30 unchanged and believe the stock's risk/reward profile remains fairly balanced."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.8%

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

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $124.32. The stock closed Friday at $100.32 and is down 0.01% year to date.
