5 Ex-Dividend Stocks With Buy Ratings

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Friday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Thursday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Realty Income ( O), Hasbro ( HAS), Brookfield Asset Management ( BAM), Casey's General Stores ( CASY) and Carbo Ceramics ( CRR).

Each of the stocks received a buy rating from TheStreet Ratings.

Realty Income

The commercial real estate owner and acquirer is scheduled to report first-quarter results on Thursday. Analysts, on average, anticipate earnings of 48 cents a share on revenue of $114.87 million.

"We rate shares of O Neutral," JPMorgan analysts wrote in an April 13 report. "The company's portfolio is performing fine, it has been very active on the acquisition front, and it has one of the best balance sheets in the REIT space, but we think this is reflected in O's premium valuation."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 4.5%

Rated "A+ (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's fourth-quarter gross profit margin was basically the same as the previous year.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 22.08% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $43.87.
