NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Loews(L) - Get Report is expected to report a year-over-year decline in 2016 third quarter earnings before the market open on Monday.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet are looking for earnings of 72 cents per share. The analysts did not provide a revenue estimate.

For the year ago period, the New York City-based insurer reported earnings of 50 cents per share on $3.17 billion in revenue. 

Recently, analysts have been upwardly revising their estimates for Loews, which typically signals that a company will beat for the quarter, according to Zack's. 

Shares of Loews were up in late-afternoon trading on Friday.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "hold" with a ratings score of C.

Loews' strengths such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance are countered by weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.
