Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected earnings of 27 cents a share on revenue of $627.29 million. These estimates usually exclude items.

Must Read: What To Hold: 3 Hold-Rated Dividend Stocks NTI, LINE, BDN STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more. TheStreet Ratings team rates LINN ENERGY LLC as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation: "We rate LINN ENERGY LLC (LINE) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed ? some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for… Highlights from the analysis by TheStreet Ratings Team goes as follows: LINE's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 3.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 923.3%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share. The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels industry. The net income increased by 93.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$430.01 million to -$30.06 million. LINN ENERGY LLC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, LINN ENERGY LLC swung to a loss, reporting -$1.86 versus $2.21 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.07 versus -$1.86). LINE has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 9.34% from its price level of one year ago. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time. Currently the debt-to-equity ratio of 1.61 is quite high overall and when compared to the industry average, suggesting that the current management of debt levels should be re-evaluated. Along with this, the company manages to maintain a quick ratio of 0.46, which clearly demonstrates the inability to cover short-term cash needs.You can view the full analysis from the report here: LINE Ratings Report STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months.

That presents an opening for investors, Cramer said. "Unless you think interest rates are going to shoot up, this may be the opportunity." Verizon is a growth company with good numbers in his view. Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) have been spending to upgrade their networks, Faber noted, igniting concerns about competitive pressure. That may hurt margins. Despite these concerns, Cramer marveled, "I can't understand why that stock's not higher." He sees VZ going to $48. Faber added that its 4.5% dividend yield is also attractive. Cramer concluded that "I would not dump Verizon." Its stubbornly resistant stock price, though, is a "puzzlement." It can't seem to break out, even in a market-wide rally. - Written by Nora Morrison in Cleveland. Follow @NoTicker
