Teva Pharmaceuticals (NYSE: TEVA) is scheduled to report second quarter 2019 earnings results on Wednesday, August 7, before market open. Analysts expect to report earnings of $0.57 per share on revenue of $4.25 billion.

Revenue declines in Copaxone as well as other key brands is also expected to hurt the top line numbers. Teva is also likely to see pressure in Europe due to discontinued business operations.
