NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Francesca's Holdings (FRAN - Get Report) stock closed Tuesday's trading session up by 0.29% to $17.34 on heavy trading volume, ahead of the boutique retailer's fourth quarter 2015 financial results, due out on Wednesday before the opening bell.
Year-over-year, both profit and revenue are projected to grow.
Wall Street is looking for earnings of 34 cents a share on revenue of $132.03 million.
During the same period a year ago, the company earned 21 cents a share on revenue of $107.64 million.
Investors will be paying close attention to the company's comparable sales and average inventory per store for the latest quarter, according to the Wall Street Journal.
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 solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.
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 articles' author.
