Duke Energy

The energy company reported on May 4 first-quarter earnings of $295 million, or 22 cents a share, down from year-earlier earnings of $511 million, or 38 cents.

"We are maintaining our 2012-2014E EPS of $1.42/$1.43/$1.55 and initiating a 2015E of $1.64," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a May 7 report. "Our revenue estimates are down somewhat based on our updated commodity assumptions that have a weaker outlook on power prices. However, margins are not as impacted as our underlying fuel price assumptions also fell. The step-up in growth in 2014 and 2015 is largely due to upside from capacity and energy pricing for the Midwest coal and natural gas generation portfolio. We expect somewhat more moderate utility growth as Duke's major generation projects are completed this year and next. While the merger should provide long-term strategic value, catalysts in the near term are relatively few. We reiterate our Neutral rating and $22 price objective."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 4.6%






Honeywell

The diversified technology and manufacturing company reported first-quarter earnings on April 20 of $823 million, or $1.04 a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $705 million, or 88 cents.

"HON's 1Q was an across the board, 'no questions asked' beat and raise, increasingly differentiated in a slowing macro landscape," JPMorgan analysts wrote in an April 23 report. "The better-than-expected 2Q range continues to 'front end load' the deliverables here, with a full year range that sets the company up for further beats in a benign macro environment. When the numbers are this good, 'over-owned' is a weak Bear case (as it has been on DHR for years), and with a few more quarters like this and HON will have to be considered as the 'must own' premium diversified industrial. In short, after of decade of restructuring/heavy lifting, it increasingly looks like this is Honeywell's cycle."
