9 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

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: State Street (STT - Get Report), Raymond James Financial (RJF - Get Report), Air Products & Chemicals (APD - Get Report), Fulton Financial (FULT), Liberty Property Trust (LRY), Medicis Pharmaceutical (MRX), Realty Income (O - Get Report), Valspar (VAL) and Wolverine Worldwide (WWW).

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

State Street

The financial services company is scheduled to report its first-quarter earnings on April 16. Analysts, on average, anticipate earnings of 88 cents a share on revenue of $2.34 billion.

"STT comes closest in our view to a pure play on the core business of asset servicing, providing key functions to fund managers worldwide," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a March 16 report. "It generates 43% of its revenue from servicing, driven mainly by the value of serviced assets, with another 26% coming from an investing portfolio funded largely by client deposits."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.1%

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

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 9.05% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $51.99. The stock closed Tuesday at $45.49 and has risen 12.85% year to date.
