What to Watch for When Corning Incorporated Reports on Tuesday

Shares of Corning (NYSE: GLW  ) have knocked it out of the park over the last 12 months, surging well ahead of what's been a very hot market in general.

Now as we head further into 2014, the question becomes: Can Corning continue its winning ways in the year to come?

What's to come
The prevailing opinion among analysts is calling for Corning to be in store for a somewhat challenged quarter. Both revenue and earnings per share are expected to decline at double digits or more compared to the same quarter a year ago.

At present, it appears to be an attractive combination of reasonable valuation, balance sheet strength, and positive growth prospect that might be worth an investor's attention.

In the video below, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner looks at the key story lines and numbers that investors need to be on the lookout in Corning's earnings this week.
