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

The trading week begins with Shanda Games (Nasdaq: GAME  ) reporting its latest quarterly results on Monday.

Despite the popularity of online gaming in China, Shanda Games has seen its stock trade in the single digits for more than two years. A strong report would help it break that unfortunate streak.

Monday is also the official start of Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) Worldwide Developers Conference. The weeklong event obviously attracts developers, but it's also a logical platform for the company to unveil upcoming products.

Michael Kors (Nasdaq: KORS  ) is one of the few companies reporting its latest financials this week. The fashionable-apparel company went public just six months ago, so this will be only its second quarter as a public entity. It blew Wall Street's profit targets away the first time around.

Korn/Ferry International (NYSE: KFY  ) reports on Wednesday. Analysts see the staffing specialist earning $0.27 a share, well short of the $0.39 it served up a year earlier.

Capstone Turbine
(Nasdaq: CPST  ) gets its chance to impress on Thursday. The microturbine producer is losing money right now, but the deficits are narrowing and its order backlog is growing.

The final trading day of the week is usually quiet, especially this time of year. There are no major earnings reports to dissect, but multiplex operators will be hoping that the strong start to 2012 continues as That's My Boy and Rock of Ages hit the big screen.
