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 trading week begins with SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX  ) reporting its latest quarterly results on Monday. Investors were left unimpressed with the IT specialist's previous report, so now it has a chance to make up for March's poorly received numbers.

Tuesday
H&R Block (NYSE: HRB  ) checks in on Tuesday. The accounting giant naturally feasts in this particular quarter, given the mid-April tax-filing deadline. Wall Street isn't holding out for bottom-line growth this time, but the 5.2% yield seems awfully tempting.

Wednesday
McCormick (NYSE: MKC  ) hopes to spice things up on Wednesday. Analysts see the spice-rack staple posting a quarterly profit of $0.60 a share, just ahead of the $0.56 it rang up a year earlier.

Thursday
Herman Miller
(Nasdaq: MLHR  ) is the office-furniture company that invented the cubicle, but don't hold that against it. Herman Miller's also a solid proxy for the state of Corporate America. What does it mean that Wall Street's expecting the company to duplicate the $0.30-per-share profit it generated during the same quarter last year?

It could be worse.

Friday
As the market hits the finish line for the week, it's fitting that Finish Line (Nasdaq: FINL  ) will also be reporting. Even though Wall Street's looking for the athletic-footwear retailer to post a dip in profitability, the pros still see modest top- and bottom-line growth for the entire fiscal year.
