Total

The French integrated oil and gas company acquired a 40% stake in the Block 3 exploration license in Yemen from Oil Search earlier this month.

"The picture post 2015 looks better as large projects (eg, Ichthys LNG, Uganda and Angola's Block 32) make development progress," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a Feb. 13 report. "However, this growth is not coming cheaply as capital intensity continues to grow and limits somewhat Total's ability to increase cash returns (4Q dividend of EUR0.57/sh, flat QoQ was inline with expectations)."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.4%

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

Total has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.74, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 10.10% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $64.61. The stock closed Monday at $55.37 and has risen 8.33% year to date.






Rayonier

The timberland management company reported fourth-quarter earnings on Jan. 24 of $56 million, or 45 cents a share, down from year-ago earnings of $59 million, or 48 cents.

"RYN's Performance Fibers business participates in niche and growing end markets that allow for increased participation," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a March 8 report. "Moreover, these markets are defensive given significant capital costs in adding capacity, technological barriers, high switching costs, and a 1-2 year product qualifying period. Further, investor concerns regarding capacity additions appear to be overdone as such expansions/conversions are primarily targeting commodity viscose, an area where RYN does not participate."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.6%

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

Rayonier has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.98, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 5.71% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $56. The stock closed Monday at $45.62 and has risen 2.22% year to date.
