7 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Monday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Friday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Halliburton (HAL - Get Report), Herbalife (HLF - Get Report), HSN (HSNI - Get Report), Praxair (PX - Get Report), Everest Re Group (RE), Stanley Black & Decker (SWK) and Westlake Chemical (WLK - Get Report).

Each of the was rated buy at TheStreet Ratings.


"We believe N. America (NA) will hold up much better than most expect and that international margins will surprise to upside as we go through 2012," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a Feb. 9 report. "We are realistic, however, that there will be little near-term evidence of this with activity transitioning out of gas plays in NA and seasonality internationally. This uncertainty may weigh on the stock near-term but we believe patience will be rewarded. HAL's leading market position in the US and international growth leave it well positioned and we rate it BUY."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1%

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

Halliburton has strong liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.92, showing that the company can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 27.23% from the prior year.
