The Fool Looks Ahead

Monday
The new trading week kicks off with Schnitzer Steel (Nasdaq: SCHN  ) . Analysts see the Portland, Ore.-based steel recycler posting a quarterly profit of $0.85 a share, 37% ahead of last year's showing.

Tuesday
Zep
(NYSE: ZEP  ) reports on Tuesday. Between competitor WD-40 (Nasdaq: WDFC  ) and its namesake lubricant and Zep's line of cleaning and maintenance solutions, the two companies combine to make things run smoothly. The other thing that the two have in common is that both companies are expected to post healthy bottom-line growth for the quarter, with WD-40 reporting on Wednesday.

Wednesday
MSCIndustrial
(NYSE: MSM  ) steps up on Wednesday. The direct marketer of industrial goods is targeted to earn $0.69 a share in its latest quarter. MSC's bottom line checked in at just $0.48 a share during the previous year's quarter.

Thursday
Watchmaker Movado (NYSE: MOV  ) and electrical-equipment manufacturer AZZ (NYSE: AZZ  ) are some of the names with quarterly presentations on Thursday.

AZZ has beaten Wall Street expectations in 12 of the past 14 quarters, so the odds are in favor of those betting that its quarterly net income will exceed the $0.73 a share that the market mavens are projecting.

Friday
It's quiet on the earnings front, but that won't stop Blyth (NYSE: BTH  ) from leaving a light on for you. The maker of scented candles closes out the trading week with its Friday morning report.

Until next week, I remain,

Rick Munarriz
