Curious about Lyft (LYFT) ?

The company is reporting its first earnings report as a public company after the bell Tuesday, May 7. 

Here's what investors should be watching. 

First and foremost? The company is expected to report an earnings per share (EPS) loss of $4.85.

The company has a 52 week range of $54.32 to $88.60.

And, of course, investors need to keep an eye peeled for Uber, which is expected to price Thursday night and then is expected to formally trade Friday. 

TheStreet's Annie Gaus wrote about the three things that she's watching ahead of the earnings. 

Since its March 29 public offering, the stock has declined about 20% - and it's among the most-shorted stocks on the market with 80% short interest as a percentage of overall float. For Lyft and its investors, it is also impossible to escape one big event looming over its shares: The upcoming initial public offering of its larger rival, Uber, wrote Gaus.
