Here's What to Expect When Box Reports Earnings Wednesday

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Box Inc (BOX) were down 4.48% to $16.83 in afternoon trading Tuesday, one day ahead of the online data storage provider's first-quarter earnings release tomorrow after the market closes.

Box, a cloud-storage company which went public earlier this year, is expected to post a loss of 31 cents per share on sales of $63.7 million dollars, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.

TheStreet's Jim Cramer, Portfolio Manager of the Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio says he's not expecting a big upside, but a better conference call compared to last quarter.

Cramer thinks that Box had a "horrendous" conference call, and is looking for a better narrative this time around.

He believes the company is "substantially" undervalued compared to its privately-held rival Dropbox.

Los Altos, Calif.-based Box has about 32 million users, compared with about 300 million for Dropbox.

Box is a provider of a cloud platform engaged in storing, sharing and managing various company files with services including secure file sharing, professional services and support, enterprise security and file synchronization.
