There's never a dull week on Wall Street. Let's go over some of the news that will shape the week to come.
OCZ Technology (NYSE: OCZ ) kicks off the new trading week with its quarterly earnings report. Analysts see the maker of solid-state drives and other premium computer components earning a small profit for the period, reversing a deficit from a year earlier.
SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX ) reports on an otherwise quiet Tuesday. Shares of the IT supply-chain specialist surged after posting better-than-expected results in its previous quarter. Shareholders will naturally be holding out for a repeat performance.
SUPERVALU (NYSE: SVU ) hits the checkout line on Wednesday. The grocery-store chain is targeted to earn $0.24 a share in its latest quarter, flat with last year's showing during the same period.
Washington Federal (Nasdaq: WFSL ) reports on Thursday.
The regional banker with $13.4 billion in assets raised its dividend rate by 33% last month. Investors should be interpreting the move as confidence that Washington Federal can keep growing. It's probably not a surprise to see Wall Street banking on a 32% uptick in profitability in its latest quarter, nearly matching the payout move.
The final trading day of the week will be quiet aside from JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM ) , which steps up with its quarterly financials in the morning. Analysts figure that the banking giant earned $0.93 a share in its latest quarter, short of the $1.12 it posted a year ago.
