The retailer reported on May 30 that same-store sales in May rose 4.2%.

"Our meeting with CEO Terry Lundgren and CFO Karen Hoguet increased our confidence that Macy's strong sales momentum will continue throughout 2012 and beyond," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a June 1 report. "Macy's M.O.M. strategies (My Macy's, Omnichannel and MAGIC selling) should drive market share gains and enable Macy's comps to grow faster than its peers (for more details, see our recent deep dive report). We view the current valuation (5x 2013E EV/EBITDA and 10x 2013E P/E) as inexpensive given Macy's consistent sales performance, substantial earnings leverage, and strong free cash flow generation."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.2%


The soft drinks giant is expected to report second-quarter earnings on July 16. Analysts, on average, expect earnings of $1.20 a share on revenue of $13.03 billion.

"While immediate macro impact of f/x moves and capital structure arbitrage should negatively impact earnings this quarter relative to consensus, we still view Coke as a core holding based on: (i) strong underlying fundamentals; (ii) potential ROIC boost from bottler divestitures and (iii) reasonable relative valuation given likely sales, gross margin and EPS growth acceleration as the year unfolds," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a May 28 report. "Maintain Buy, $80 target."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.8%
