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 Hillenbrand (NYSE: HI  ) unearthing its latest financial report. From burial caskets to post-cremation urns, Hillenbrand is a leader in funeral service products. Death care isn't a very rosy topic, but we can all probably agree that it's a pretty steady business.

Tuesday
ADT (NYSE: ADT  ) is a recognized brand in home security and electronic surveillance. It generated $3.1 billion in revenue last year through its 6.4 million customers. ADT just hasn't been trading as a standalone company for too long, spun off by Tyco (NYSE: TYC  ) less than two months ago.

ADT's first shot to impress investors as a public company comes with Tuesday's quarterly report.

Wednesday
Workday (NYSE: WDAY  ) rolls in on Wednesday. Like ADT, Workday hasn't been trading for long. The provider of cloud-based enterprise software priced its IPO at $28 last month, and it has gone on to be one of this year's biggest rookie performers.

Workday also gets its first chance to shine for investors with its quarterly results.

Thursday
Five Below
(Nasdaq: FIVE  ) reports on Thursday. The company runs a fast-growing namesake retail chain that sells fashionable items at $5 or less. This is "cheap chic" at the extreme end of the "cheap" spectrum.

Friday
The final trading day of the week -- and the final trading day of November, for that matter -- will be quiet on the earnings front, but that won't stop United Natural Foods (Nasdaq: UNFI  ) from reporting. Analysts see the distributor of natural foods earning $0.46 a share in Friday morning's quarterly report, just ahead of the $0.40 it earned a year earlier.
