Barnes Group

The logistical services company reported on April 27 first-quarter net income of $22.2 million, or 40 cents a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $19.1 million, or 34 cents.

"B's 1Q12 earnings were modestly below consensus on revenue growth below the full-year guidance, but we note results close to expected trend despite a breadth of easily understood timing factors," Oppenheimer analysts wrote in an April 30 report. "The quarter saw a slower start for Aero OE (can be lumpy, but solid 1.17 b:b) and European Manufacturing (but ~105%+ b:b), and Aero AM spares were impacted by 4Q11 pull forwards (2Q sequential improvement expected). Full-year OM guidance of ~12% compares to 10.9% in 1Q, supported by improving sales mix (Aero AM spares, European manufacturing including NPIs), seasonally stronger 2Q/3Q volumes (supported by backlog), and diminishing manufacturing outsourcing. European-based demand remains a risk, but we note some export orientation and current trends consistent with expectations."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.7%






Great Plains Energy

The electricity company reported on May 3 a first-quarter loss of $9.5 million, or 7 cents a share, a reversal from year-earlier earnings of $2 million, or 1 cent a share.

"Our 12-18 month price target of $20.50 equates to ~15x the average of our 2012 and 2013 EPS estimates," D.A. Davidson analysts wrote in a May 7 report. "We continue to believe Great Plains had significant potential to grow earnings over the long term, but that a discounted valuation is justified until we see more tangible evidence of a shift in Missouri's relatively challenging regulatory backdrop."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 4.2%
