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 new trading week kicks off with Ferrellgas Partners (NYSE: FGP ) posting its latest quarterly results.
The propane transporter attracts income investors with its beefy 10.4% yield, but don't expect a meaty profit when it reports on Monday morning. This is a very seasonal business, and this is the lull. Ferrellgas is fine posting a quarterly deficit during its fiscal fourth quarter. It should more than make that back through the balance of the year.
Resources Connection (Nasdaq: RECN ) checks in on Tuesday. Analysts see the professional services provider earning $0.12 a share in its latest quarter, twice as much as it earned a year earlier.
OCZ Technology (NYSE: OCZ ) reports in the middle of the week. The maker of solid-state drives has already had a disappointing summer, issuing warnings that find analysts expecting OCZ to post a widening deficit on Wednesday.
International Speedway (Nasdaq: ISCA ) makes its quarterly pit stop on Thursday.
Analysts see the motorsports promoter behind the Daytona International Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, and Michigan International Speedway posting a quarterly profit of $0.08 a share.
The week closes out quietly on the earnings front, so let's go to the movies.
Disney's (NYSE: DIS ) Frankenweenie may be the top draw at the multiplex. Tim Burton's latest stop-motion animated film opens its theatrical run on Friday.
