This quick video takes a look at Mylan (MYL - Free Report) ahead of its earnings report. The pharma company has been under pressure for much of 2016 while a bottom 33% industry rank isn’t helping matters either.

Even more troubling than the weak industry rank is the rank for MYL stock. Shares of Mylan are now in ‘sell’ territory, while the VGM score for the stock is just a ‘C’. Additionally, the stock has a negative earnings ESP, which can be a harbinger of a miss in earnings season.

However, investors should note that while estimates are definitely trending lower, MYL does have a history of beating earnings expectations. The company has missed just twice in the past five years, so history is definitely on Mylan’s side, though it could be a case where the outlook and the sector perception weigh on the shares more than anything.
