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 WD-40 (Nasdaq: WDFC ) reporting its latest quarterly results on Monday.
Analysts see the company behind the namesake lubricant and other home and industrial essentials earning $0.61 a share, well ahead of the $0.47 it earned a year earlier.
The market is quiet ahead of earnings season, which kicks in the following week, but Tuesday won't be completely silent. VOXX (Nasdaq: VOXX ) is one of a handful of companies reporting this week. Wall Street's banking on the consumer-electronics company to crank out a profit of $0.10 a share.
Marriott (NYSE: MAR ) spun off its timeshare business late last year, so Wednesday's quarterly report can't be exactly compared with the quarter it posted a year ago, but the hospitality giant is expected to post a healthy quarterly profit.
Resources Connection (Nasdaq: RECN ) steps up on Thursday. The professional-services firm provides business leaders with the tools to execute internal initiatives. Business services and consulting are often good gauges for corporate activity. In that case, it's probably a good thing that analysts see strong bottom-line growth here.
The final trading day of the week is usually quiet, and it won't be any different this time around. A few financial-services providers will be checking in, including Webster Bank parent company Webster Financial (NYSE: WBS ) .
Banking may not seem like a very compelling place to invest these days, but the pros see Webster posting healthy earnings growth.
