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 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.

Tuesday
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.

Wednesday
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.

Thursday
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.

Friday
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.
