The Fool Looks Ahead

There's never a dull week on Wall Street. Let's go over some of the news that will shape the week to come.

Monday
The new trading week kicks off with Digital Domain Media Group (Nasdaq: DDMG  ) reporting its quarterly results. The producer of digital visual effects has had a hand in some popular movies including Titanic, Real Steel, and TRON: Legacy.

Tuesday
Mitcham Industries (Nasdaq: MIND  ) steps up on Tuesday. Analysts see the supplier of geophysical equipment earning $0.57 a share, well ahead of the $0.17 it posted a year earlier.

Wednesday
MSC Industrial Direct (NYSE: CMC  ) is one of a handful of companies checking in with their quarterly results on Wednesday. The distributor of industrial products should earn $0.95 a share, according to Wall Street pros, easily beating the $0.78 profit it served up last year.

Thursday
Pier 1 Imports
(NYSE: PIR  ) furnishes its latest financials on Thursday.

The home-decor retailer has been one of the market's biggest winners since bottoming out at $0.10 a share three years ago. The stock is a 180-bagger!

Putting things into perspective, analysts see Pier 1 Imports earning $0.48 a share on Thursday for its holiday quarter. Yes, a company will earn in a single quarter nearly 5 times what the entire company was being valued at on a market-cap basis three years ago.

Friday
The market is closed in observance of Good Friday, but that won't stop FNB United (Nasdaq: FNBN  ) from offering up a prerecorded conference call to discuss its year-end financials. FNB is the bank holding company for CommunityOne Bank and Bank of Granite.
