NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Magna Int'l.  (MGA) - Get Report stock is down 0.09% to $34.75 in mid-morning trading on Thursday ahead of the company's 2015 fourth quarter results, due out before Friday's market open. 

Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters are projecting the Canadian automotive supplier to report earnings of $1.11 per share on revenue of $8.31 billion.

Last year, Magna reported earnings of $2.52 per share on revenue of $9.39 billion during the 2014 fourth quarter, according to Bloomberg.

Separately, recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.

TheStreet Ratings rates this stock as a "hold" with a ratings score of C+. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and attractive valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow, poor profit margins and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.
