Stock Analysts’ ratings reiterations for Thursday, January 9th:

Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) had its buy rating reaffirmed by analysts at Argus. The firm currently has a $85.00 price target on the stock, down from their previous price target of $88.00.

BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY) had its market perform rating reaffirmed by analysts at Wells Fargo & Co.. The analysts wrote, “With cash burn improvement expected this quarter relative to the November quarter and the additional $250MM from Fairfax, liquidity concerns are now less of an issue,” the report noted. “Additionally, we believe there is scope for further cost realignment (which we believed would be necessary) as well as asset sales. The Foxconn hardware deal should also reduce working capital risks and improve margins. However, our concern is two-fold – 1) that BBRY will have to be aggressive on pricing or subsidize hardware in order to convert BB7 to BB10 users and 2) that Software revenue growth will not be enough initially to offset Service revenue declines.”

Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY) had its buy rating reaffirmed by analysts at TheStreet. The analysts wrote, “Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of B. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.”

Citigroup (NYSE:C) had its buy rating reaffirmed by analysts at TheStreet. The analysts wrote, “Citigroup (C) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of B. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.”

Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) had its buy rating reissued by analysts at TheStreet. The analysts wrote, “Caterpillar (CAT) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of B. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.”
