Public Storage

The real estate investment trust reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $164.2 million, or 96 cents a share, up from year-ago earnings of $121.4 million, or 71 cents.

"While PSA's domestic portfolio is showing impressive strength, its Shurgard Europe portfolio is lagging given the lack of economic growth in Europe," Jefferies analysts wrote in a Feb. 24 report. "Per mgmt, France (PSA's largest European market) is slowing, although London remains a bright spot (occupancy in 4Q11 rose YoY to 87% from 83.7%)."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.4%

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

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth decreased 4.47% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $176.07. The stock closed Thursday at $129.34 and has fallen 3.81% year to date.






Ameren

The public utility reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $25 million, or 10 cents a share, down from year-ago earnings of $52 million, or 21 cents.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 5%

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

Ameren has very weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.45, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 2.48% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $38.94. The stock closed Thursday at $31.91 and has fallen 3.68% year to date.
