TD Ameritrade

The brokerage reported first-quarter profit of $152 million, or 27 cents a share, on Jan. 17, an increase from $145 million, or 25 cents, last year.

"Revenues were a bit weaker due to a seasonal retrenchment in retail trading and the continued impact of near-zero interest rates; expenses were also a touch higher than we forecast," Credit Suisse analysts wrote in a report about TD Ameritrade's earnings. "On a more positive note, net new asset gathering was once again strong and share repurchase activity continues to pace well ahead of our expectations (over 1% of the company during the quarter alone)."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.4%

Rated "B- (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's first-quarter gross profit margin was about the same as a year ago.

In the first quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 2.95% from the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $19.38. The stock closed Thursday at $16.37.
