With the passing of legendary investor Kirk Kerkorian earlier this week, and his private investment corporation, Tracinda, looking to sell its stake in MGM Resorts, we decided to check Quant Ratings to see if any of Kerkorian's favorite companies would be good investments today. Kerkorian was affiliated with many successful companies in his long investing career. Although he did not own all of the companies on our list, Kerkorian crossed paths with them during some point in his career.

Here are some of the best 'Kerkorian companies'TheStreet Quant Ratings says you should consider looking at. Number 3 is General Motors Company. With a 'B' rating, the company's strengths can be seen in its increase in net income and notable return on equity. 2nd is, Ford Motor Company. This rating is also a 'B.' Ford's strong cash flow from operations outweighs its drop in revenue. Number 1 is Time Warner Cable. With a 'B+' rating the company flourishes in its revenue growth and notable return on equity.
