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 SHFL entertainment (NASDAQ: SHFL  ) posting its latest quarterly results. The company that many investors remember as ShuffleMaster changed its name recently. Yes, it still sells the automatic card shufflers that earned it its original corporate moniker, but the company is a provider of a lot more casino equipment these days.

Analysts see SHFL posting a profit of $0.21 a share after standing at $0.18 a year earlier.

Tuesday
FactSet Research (NYSE: FDS  ) reports on Tuesday. Providing financial-services professionals with high-end financial data has been a pretty steady gig for FactSet. Analysts see another quarter of slow yet steady bottom-line improvement.

Wednesday
Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY  ) gets its shot to hit the register on Wednesday. We've seen home-improvement specialists and retailers start to show signs of life as folks feel more comfortable investing in their digs. Will the same trend apply to soft goods? We'll find out on Wednesday.

Thursday
Micron Technology
(NASDAQ: MU  ) jogs its memory on Thursday. The DRAM specialist has posted losses in each of its five prior quarters. What do analysts see out of Micron Technology this time around? Do you have to ask? Wall Street's banking on a deficit of $0.19 a share .

Friday
The final trading day of the week will be quiet on the earnings front, but that will only give traders time to wonder whether the Mayans were right.

Those still tracking the market on Friday will be treated to Walgreen (NYSE: WAG  ) . The drugstore chain is expected to post a profit of $0.70 a share when it speaks up on Friday morning.
