Hubbell

The electronics company reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $70 million, or $1.17 a share, up from year-ago earnings of $49.7 million, or 81 cents.

"We are raising '12E EPS to $4.80 from $4.65 and setting '13E at $5.45. PT raised to $80 from $69, based on 16.7x our '12E EPS, in line with historical mid-cycle multiples," Oppenheimer analysts wrote in a Jan. 26 report. "Marketplace sales execution appears broad-based and opportunistic, and we are biased to 2012 revenue upside."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.2%

Rated "A- (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's fourth-quarter gross profit margin was about the same as it was last year.

Hubbell has strong liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.98, which shows the company can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth was basically the same as it was the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $85.47. The stock closed Tuesday at $73.05 and has risen 22.06% year to date.






Fluor

The project management services company reported last week fourth-quarter earnings of $153 million, or 90 cents a share, up from year-ago earnings of $117 million, or 65 cents.

"As we expected, FLR maintained its conservative '12 EPS outlook of $3.40-3.80," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a Feb. 23 report. "The mid-point of the range was below consensus of $3.76 and our high-on-the- Street forecast of $4.25. We think that FLR has an earnings cushion early in the year, and maintain our estimates."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1%

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

Fluor has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.91, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth decreased 2.90% from the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $73.91. The stock closed Tuesday at $62.00 and has risen 23.38% year to date.
