AptarGroup

The consumer product dispensing system company is scheduled to report first-quarter results on April 25. Analysts, on average, anticipate earnings of 63 cents a share on revenue of $578.95 million.

"We consider AptarGroup, Inc. (ATR-NYSE) a high-quality company in every respect: it has a solid long-term track record, it has been managed conservatively (examples include its limited use of debt, focus on organic growth rather than on acquisition driven growth, the absence of adjustments in its reported results, and the challenging targets on which management incentive payouts are based), and its products are clearly differentiated and make life easier for consumers," KeyBanc Capital Markets analysts wrote in an April 11 report. "We also believe Aptar has ample opportunities to grow in the years to come, particularly in its Pharma and Food & Beverage businesses."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.6%

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

AptarGroup has average liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.48, which shows the company can technically meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth was about the same as it was the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $62.95.






H.B. Fuller

The specialty chemical products company reported on March 28 first-quarter earnings of $15.3 million, or 30 cents a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $14.4 million, or 29 cents.

"Overall, we believe multiple expansion should unfold as strategic growth and cost savings initiatives continue to gain traction helping transform H.B. Fuller Company (FUL-NYSE) into a highly profitable adhesives company with solid earnings potential in FY12E and beyond," KeyBanc Capital Markets analysts wrote in an April 2 report. "We view accelerating volume growth, positive accretion from the FORBO acquisition and potential upside from cost synergies unfolding faster than expected in FY12 as positive catalysts for the stock."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.1%

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

H.B. Fuller has average liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.46, which shows the company can technically meet its short-term cash needs.

In the first quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 9.43% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $41.24.
