"In our view, the company is facing headwinds in its efforts to increase penetration of the larger retail market, the net effect of which in the short term are higher cotton costs in the current quarter. 2Q EPS guidance of $0.65 a share compares with our original estimate of $0.75."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.2%

"Outperform rating maintained due to strong fundamentals and a growing pipeline of external growth opportunities supported by SPG's low capital cost," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in an April 27 report. "Raising 2012/2013 FFO/share ests. from $7.61 to $7.67 and $8.08 to $8.26. Increasing valuation range from $144-$154 to $170-$180, a 10% premium to our NAV range of $154-$165. Believe premium is justified by SPG's proven operating and development accumen and a management team that has shown its ability to create value for shareholders over time."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.6%
