4 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

Stocks in this article: DPSDTEFRTRCI

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Thursday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Wednesday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Dr. Pepper Snapple Group (DPS), DTE Energy (DTE), Federal Realty Investment Trust (FRT) and Rogers Communications (RCI).

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

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group

The beverage company reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $166 million, or 78 cents a share, up from year-ago earnings of $112 million, or 49 cents.

"Coming out of the Consumer Analyst Group of New York presentation we continue to believe management is executing well against a good strategy for growing a relatively mature business," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in a Feb. 23 report. "However, given the lingering impact of higher commodity prices and lack of near-term catalysts we see limited opportunity for share price appreciation from the current level. We maintain our Market Perform rating and $36-38 valuation range."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.6%

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

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.70, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth decreased 7.97% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $43.54. The stock closed Tuesday at $38.93 and has fallen 1.39% year to date.
