While the firm models gas price-related revenues improving in 2017, it forecasts less improvement in spread-related revenue as a lower gas price environment could drive structurally lower gas spreads.

Shares of Fleetcor are down by 0.3% to $119.77 at the start of trading on Wednesday.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "buy" rating with a score of B on the stock.
