5 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: News Corp. (NWS - Get Report), Public Storage (PSA - Get Report), Ameren (AEE - Get Report), Broadridge Financial Solutions (BR - Get Report) and SPX (SPW).

Each of the stocks received a buy rating at TheStreet Ratings.

News Corp.

James Murdoch, son of News Corp. Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, resigned from his role as executive chairman of the company's U.K. publishing division on Feb. 29.

"With Publishing, we view NWSA as undervalued by ~26%; WITHOUT Publishing, we view NWSA as undervalued by 34% to 71%," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in a March 1 report. "We stripped Publishing out of our model to create a "NEW" NWSA, which led to significantly higher growth metrics. As a result, we see plenty of upside (8-45% ON TOP of our current val range) should NWSA choose to exit this business."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 0.9%

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

News Corp. has strong liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.76, which shows the company can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the second quarter, stockholders' net worth remained relatively unchanged.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $24.15. The stock closed Thursday at $19.95 and has risen 9.74% year to date.
