How Will Sysco (SYY) Stock React to Monday's Q1 Earnings?

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Sysco (SYY) were higher in midday trading on Thursday ahead of the company's 2017 fiscal first quarter results, due out before Monday's market open.

Wall Street is expecting earnings and revenue to rise year-over-year.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet are looking for adjusted earnings of 58 cents per share on revenue of $13.88 billion.

During the same quarter a year ago, the Houston-based food distributor earned 52 cents per diluted share on revenue of $12.56 billion.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Buy" rating with a score of A- on the stock.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations.

The team believes its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that were evaluated.

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's author.
