NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Veeva Systems (VEEV) - Get Report stock is rising 5.64% to $28.85 on heavy volume Wednesday after the software company's fiscal 2016 third-quarter earnings results missed analysts' expectations.

We are executing well and setting up for the tremendous opportunity that lies ahead."

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates VEEVA SYSTEMS INC as a Sell with a ratings score of D. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

We rate VEEVA SYSTEMS INC (VEEV) a SELL. This is driven by several weaknesses, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been weak operating cash flow.
