NEW YORK (TheStreet) --Monsanto (MON) is scheduled to release its 2015 third quarter earnings results before the market open on Wednesday morning. Analysts are expecting the company, which supplies farmers with agricultural products, to post a year-over-year rise in earnings and revenue for the quarter.
The company has been forecast to report earnings of $2.06 per share on revenue of $4.60 billion for the quarter ended May 2015.
Last year, Monsanto said it earned $1.62 per diluted share on total sales of $4.25 billion for the 2014 third quarter.
Shares of Monsanto are down by 0.26% to $114.04 at the start of trading on Tuesday morning.
Earlier today, Monsanto's offer to take over the agribusiness Syngenta (SYT) was once again refused. The Swiss company believes Monsanto's $45 billion offer undervalues its business, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates MONSANTO CO as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate MONSANTO CO (MON) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations, notable return on equity, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and attractive valuation levels. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself."
