Tidewater

The marine support services company reported earlier this month third-quarter earnings of $34.1 million, or 67 cents a share, down slightly from year-ago earnings of $34.4 million, or 67 cents.

"The deepwater platform supply vessel is the first market segment to show improvement, and day rates are improving considerably on new contracts," Dahlman Rose analysts wrote in a report Monday. "This should be a major benefit to Tidewater, which has about 50 deepwater PSVs. Moreover, it is building another 19 PSVs, and we believe that it may order ten additional platform supply vessels in the coming months. The company's average rate is $23,800, but we expect new fixtures to exceed $30,000 per day."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.6%

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

Tidewater is extremely liquid. Its Quick Ratio is 2.30, which shows the company can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth was about the same as it was last year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $72.44. The stock closed Tuesday at $60.37 and has risen 22.45% year to date.






Suncor Energy

The integrated energy company reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $1.43 billion, or 91 cents a share, up from year-ago earnings of $1.29 billion, or 82 cents.

"To that end, barring any large deterioration in oil prices, we believe a dividend increase will be announced around Suncor's Q1/12 earnings release (likely in May)," Canaccord analysts wrote in a Feb. 23 report. "Last year, the company increased the dividend by 10%; however, investors would like to see a larger increase this year, in our view, given the free cash flow potential of the company."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.2%

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

Suncor Energy has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.96, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 5.11% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $42.15. The stock closed Tuesday at $36.45 and has risen 26.43% year to date.
