NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Summit Materials (SUM) - Get Report were advancing in mid-afternoon trading on Wednesday after the company posted better-than-anticipated revenue for the 2016 second quarter.

Before today's opening bell, the Denver-based construction materials company reported total revenue of $445.27 million. Analysts were expecting revenue of $422.18 million.

Adjusted earnings of 46 cents per share missed analysts' estimates by a penny.

"We've made considerable progress over the past year integrating acquisitions, which contributed significantly to our net revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth in the second quarter of 2016," CEO Tom Hill said in a statement.

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

The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself, poor profit margins and generally high debt management risk.

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.
