Get Ready to Resume Health-Care Earnings Season

Earnings season is back on track today as residents across the Northeast recover from Hurricane Sandy's devastating effects. Some major players in the health-care space -- including pharma companies Pfizer (NYSE: PFE  ) and Vertex (Nasdaq: VRTX  ) -- were due to report their quarterly earnings yesterday but decided to give investors a rain check. Biotech MannKind (Nasdaq: MNKD  ) , which is completing clinical trials for its diabetes drug Afrezza, and Cell Therapeutics (Nasdaq: CTIC  ) , which is developing a number of oncology drugs, followed suit and will now post their results on Thursday.

Despite the storm and market closures, a number of health-care companies decided to post their earnings as originally scheduled. To keep up with those that have already reported and those that have postponed, here's an updated schedule:
