InterContinental Hotels Group

The hotel company is starting its first upscale hotel chain in China; it will be called HUALUXE Hotels and Resorts.

"Even though IHG has a solid business model, and despite its strong presence in America, the company is not immune to the lack of visibility on the hotels market," Societe Generale analysts wrote in a report Monday. "The latter doesn't seem discounted at this stage, whereas growth prospects do."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.2%

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

InterContinental Hotels Group has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.66, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 92.6% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $26.78. The stock closed Monday at $23.27 and has risen 29.35% year to date.






Coventry Health Care

The managed health care company reported last month fourth-quarter earnings of $85.7 million, or 61 cents a share, down from year-earlier earnings of $150.3 million, or $1.02.

"This morning, in a somewhat unexpected move, CVH announced that it is instituting a quarterly dividend of $0.125/share, representing a dividend yield of 1.5% and a payout ratio of about 16%," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a March 12 report. "As a reminder, managed care companies began instituting meaningful quarterly dividends starting with UNH in May 2010, and AET, HUM, WLP and, now, CVH have since followed suit (average yield of 1.4%). We view the announcement as a positive for CVH, as the dividend puts it in line with peers on the yield front, while still leaving significant upside from M&A and share repurchase (we estimate CVH could deploy 24% of its market cap in 2012)."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.5%

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

Coventry Health Care has average liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.14, which shows the company can technically meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 7.42% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $41.32. The stock closed Monday at $33.72 and has risen 11.03% year to date.
