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
It's a relatively light week on the earnings front, but Monday kicks off with LDK Solar (NYSE: LDK  ) posting its latest quarterly results.

It's been more than a year since LDK has delivered a quarterly profit, and it's not likely to happen now. Wall Street sees the maker of photovoltaic products posting a widening deficit.

Tuesday
Schiff Nutrition (NYSE: SHF  ) checks in on Tuesday. The distributor of nutritional supplements offers more than 400 types of vitamins, supplements, and nutrition bars.

At least Schiff's financial performances are being fortified. Analysts see profitability climbing 25% to $0.20 a share in its latest quarter.

Wednesday
Bed Bath & Beyond (Nasdaq: BBBY  ) runs a popular chain of superstores selling home goods.

This would seem to be a good time to be selling low-ticket soft goods. The economy is showing some signs of life, and folks are starting to feel comfortable in sprucing up their homes. We'll see if that's how things are playing out when the retailer posts its fiscal quarterly report.

Thursday
Cintas
(Nasdaq: CTAS  ) suits up on Thursday.

The leading provider of corporate uniforms is a great proxy for Corporate America. If companies are hiring more, it should show up in revenue growth for Cintas. Wall Street's only expecting Cintas to grow its top line by just 4%.

Friday 
If you see long lines building by your local Apple Store, you know the drill. Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) iPhone 5 hits stores on Friday. It's the first time in Apple history that the company has increased the size of its smartphone screen, but that's not the only reason why folks will be getting an iPhone 5.

It's Apple. They make it. Folks want it.
