NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- AutoZone (AZO)  shares are rising 0.54% to $760.62 on Friday afternoon ahead of the company's fiscal 2016 third quarter results due out Tuesday before the market open.

Year-over-year, profit and revenue are projected to grow. 

For the recent period, Wall Street is looking for earnings of $10.92 a share on revenue of $2.65 billion.

A year ago, the company earned $9.57 a share on revenue of $2.49 billion.
