NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of BP (BP) - Get Report were lower in early afternoon trading on Monday as the company prepares to report 2016 third quarter results before Tuesday's market open.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet are looking for the London-based integrated oil and gas company to post adjusted earnings of 24 cents per American depositary share on revenue of $50.15 billion.

In the year-ago quarter, BP reported earnings of 60 cents per ADR on $55.88 billion in revenue.

The firm has a "hold" rating and $36.99 price target on the stock, according to FactSet.
