PetSmart

The pet supplies company reported Feb. 29 fourth-quarter earnings of $102 million, or 91 cents a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $90.3 million, or 77 cents.

"We expect a growing pet population to support a re-acceleration in growth of PETM's higher-margin hardgoods and services, in addition to continued strong growth of super premium and natural consumables," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in an April 17 report. "We forecast that PETM will deliver the highest EPS growth in Hardlines (24/23% in 2012/13), while improving returns. March comScore data showing PetSmart.com and Wag.com receiving 3.5mn and 227k visitors, respectively, underscores our confidence that the online threat is overblown."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1%

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

PetSmart has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.73, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth decreased 1.43% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $74.77.






Procter & Gamble

The consumer-products company is scheduled to report third-quarter results on Friday. Analysts, on average, anticipate earnings of 93 cents a share on $20.30 billion in revenue.

"We see solid, if unspectacular, risk/reward, and believe that P&G's new plans, despite a lack of detail, do raise the likelihood of savings being delivered," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in an April 17 report. "PG has historically been the least active in driving savings targets internally, offering opportunity for change. In a recent report, we noted that if PG can generate 75% of its headline savings target, we believe it can deliver 9% annual EPS growth, while also funding about 90-95bps of mix drag (Dissecting cost savings: enough to offset mix and still grow?)."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 3.3%

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

Procter & Gamble has very weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.38, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the second quarter, stockholders' net worth was about the same as it was the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $76.89.
