NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Newell Brands (NWL) - Get Report  were declining in mid-afternoon trading on Thursday ahead of the company's fiscal 2016 third-quarter results, due out before tomorrow's market open. 

Analysts surveyed by FactSet are looking for adjusted earnings of 73 cents per share and $4.06 billion in revenue. 

For the year-ago period, the Atlanta-based consumer goods company posted adjusted earnings of 62 cents per share on revenue of $1.53 billion.

In April, Newell completed its $15.4 billion acquisition of Jarden, a consumer goods company known for brands like Mr. Coffee machines and Coleman camping gear.

The surge in 2016 revenue compared to last year is largely a result of the Jarden deal.

Separately, 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.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. The team feels its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.
