Herbalife

The personal care company reported on Feb. 21 fourth-quarter earnings of $105.4 million, or 91 cents a share, up from year-ago earnings of $86.3 million, or 73 cents.

"Visibility on continued momentum is high as distributor metrics are robust and accelerating," Canaccord analysts wrote in a Feb. 22 report. "New distributor growth is running well ahead of volume growth (+37%) and retention of sales leaders is rising (52% vs. 49% last year)."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.8%

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

Herbalife has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.68, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 12.13% from the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $87.37. The stock closed Thursday at $67.70 and has increased 31.02% year to date.


HSN

The private label merchandise company reported last week fourth-quarter earnings of $46.5 million, or 76 cents a share, up from year-ago earnings of $41.3 million, or 69 cents.

"While investors' conversations about HSNI tend to focus on the namesake HSN division, we believe Cornerstone is benefiting from an attractive demographic positioning and has a number of initiatives on deck for 2012 that could potentially help total company results to exceed our estimates," Piper Jaffray analysts wrote in a Feb. 23 report. "Cornerstone's four major initiatives for FY12 include upgrading its websites to increase engagement and conversion, further utilizing search optimization, enhancing customer email customization, and growth in the mobile and tablet channel."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.3%

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

HSN has average liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.30, which shows that the company can technically meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 23.76% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $48.48. The stock closed Thursday at $36.90 and has risen 1.77% year to date.
