4 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Tuesday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Monday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Adtran (ADTN - Get Report), Aptargroup (ATR - Get Report), H.B. Fuller (FUL - Get Report) and Government Properties Income Trust (GOV - Get Report).

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


The networking equipment maker reported on April 10 first-quarter earnings of $13 million, or 20 cents a share, down from year-earlier earnings of $34.3 million, or 52 cents.

"We view ADTN as an indirect play on global network traffic on wired and wireless networks," ThinkEquity analysts wrote in an April 16 report. "Our $31 price target is based on 15.1x our updated FY13 EPS estimate of $2.05. We find the stock fairly valued in the low-to-mid $30s and would see support in the high $20s or 10x our new CY13E plus $8.00 in net cash."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.2%

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

Adtran is very liquid. Its Quick Ratio is 3.93, which shows the company can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the first quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 11.15% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $35.40.
