NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Hertz Global Holdings (HTZ) - Get Report stock closed higher by 6.71% to $8.27 on Friday afternoon before the company reports its 2015 fourth quarter financial results Monday after the market close.

The Estero, FL-based car rental company is expected to deliver a year-over-year increase in earnings, but a 1.70% drop in revenue.

Wall Street is anticipating earnings of 4 cents per share on revenue of $2.52 billion for the latest quarter.

Last year, Hertz posted a loss of 50 cents per share on revenue of $2.56 billion for the 2014 fourth quarter.

Analysts and investors will also be looking at Hertz's 2016 guidance after competitor Avis Budget Group (CAR) issued a disappointing outlook earlier this week.

On Tuesday, Avis set its 2016 earnings guidance at $2.70 to $3.30 per share, well below the previous consensus of $3.43 per share. Estimates have since fallen to $3.31 per share.

TheStreet Recommends

Separately, Hertz has a "sell" rating and a letter grade of D+ at TheStreet Ratings because of the company's generally high debt management risk, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and disappointing stock performance.
