NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Vera Bradley (VRA) - Get Report  shares closed Tuesday's trading session down 0.65% to $15.32 despite expectations of profit and revenue rising year-over-year.

When the company reports its fiscal 2017 first quarter results on Wednesday before the market open, Wall Street is looking for earnings of 5 cents a share on revenue of $106.75 million.

A year ago, the company's earnings were flat while revenue came in at $101.1 million. 

For the recent period, investors will be focusing on the company's comparable store sales and e-commerce sales.

Based in Roanoke, IN, Vera Bradley designs, manufactures, and sells handbags, accessories, and luggage and travel items for women.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings currently has a "Hold" rating on the stock with a letter grade of C+.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and attractive valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.

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 article's author.
