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 market kicks off with Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS  ) reporting its latest quarterly results on Monday morning. Three-dimensional printing was one of last year's hottest sectors, though investors have been steering clear of the few publicly traded companies specializing in additive manufacturing lately. Stratasys will give the niche a shot to get back into the limelight.

Tuesday
Qihoo 360 (NYSE: QIHU  ) reports on Tuesday. The company behind China's leading Internet browser and provider of online security solutions turned heads this summer when it rolled out its own search engine. The market was even more surprised when Qihoo 360's engine began to take off at the expense of the market darling.

Qihoo 360 will shed some light on its progress on Tuesday, and that will hopefully include some insight into the recent legal fisticuffs in the world's largest Internet market.

Wednesday
Alon USA Parnters (NYSE: ALDW  ) checks in on Wednesday. The limited partnership has the capacity to crank out 70,000 barrels a day through a crude oil refinery in Texas. Analysts are holding out for a juicy quarterly profit of $1.83 a unit when it reports.

Thursday
Skullcandy
(NASDAQ: SKUL  ) is one of the bigger disappointments of the 2011 IPO class. The maker of headphones and other audio accessories went public at $20, and it has since shed more than two thirds of its value. We'll see on Thursday whether it can turn in an amplified performance with its latest report.

Friday
Friday is usually quiet on the earnings front, but that won't stop Arcos Dorados (NYSE: ARCO  ) from reporting. The Argentina-based company is the world's largest Mickey D's franchisee, serving up Big Macs and fries across Latin America and the Caribbean. If there's every any doubt where its burger-flipping allegiance lies, just know that the corporate moniker means "Golden Arches" in Spanish.
