Tyco International

The security products and services company is scheduled to report second-quarter results on Thursday.

"We believe there is significant embedded TYC value to be unlocked because of the separation," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a report Monday. "Independent of the separation, TYC shares should also continue to benefit from margin runway, share repurchase, and the overall company's relatively defensive portfolio mix (roughly 50% of sales from recurring, highly predicatable services) against a backdrop of economic uncertainty."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.8%

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

Tyco has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.83, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the first quarter, stockholders' net worth remained about the same as the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $64.01.






Williams-Sonoma

The home goods company reported on March 8 fourth-quarter earnings of $1.3 billion, or $1.17 a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $1.2 billion, or $1.05 a share.

"We believe WSM's dominant e-commerce business remains a significant growth catalyst," Canaccord analysts wrote in an April 2 report. "WSM is the clear leader in home furnishings ecommerce, generating $1.4B in FY11 online revenues, nearly 3x the size of its closest competitor."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.3%

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

Williams-Sonoma has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.99, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth was basically the same as the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $43.97.
