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
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) kicks off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday. This is an important time for the consumer tech giant as it tries to convince developers that Android isn't the world's mobile operating system of choice.

It's true that Android has been gaining ground on iOS as a freely available open platform, but Apple can always claim that iOS users are the ones spending money on applications. Either way, this won't just be a week for developers to tune in to hear what Apple's doing. The rumor mills say Apple is making a push for smart home technology and wearable computing. 

Tuesday
FuelCell Energy  (NASDAQ: FCEL  ) reports quarterly results on Tuesday morning. Stifel resumed coverage of FuelCell Energy with a "buy" rating and a price target of $2.90 on Wednesday. It's usually a good sign when analysts scramble to make bullish calls just ahead of an earnings report, but naturally we'll have to see what Tuesday brings to FuelCell Energy investors. 

Wednesday
True to its name, Five Below (NASDAQ: FIVE  ) sells products that cost $5 or less. The chain is popular with teens and other young shoppers for its bargains on trendy items, bringing a new meaning to the "cheap chic" mantra. This is no stodgy dollar store. 

Five Below reports fresh financials on Wednesday afternoon. Unlike other discounters that have been struggling to grow, Five Below's making the most of its increased comps by expanding aggressively. Analysts see revenue and earnings climbing 28% and 20%, respectively.

Thursday
Ciena  (NYSE: CIEN  )  checks in on Thursday morning. Wall Street missed the boat in assessing the networking specialist last time out, when it earned more than twice as much as the $0.06 a share the pros were targeting. Analysts have responded by juicing up their estimates, and now they see Ciena earning $0.13 a share in its fiscal second quarter. It only earned $0.02 a year earlier.

Friday
If it's Friday, it must be time to stay in for a night of binge viewing. Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX  )  begins streaming the second season of Orange Is the New Black on Friday. At a time when traditional network television is pulling back on its prime time programming for the summer lull, Netflix is apparently kicking things into high gear. Another season of Hemlock Grove follows a month later.

Your credit card may soon be completely worthless
The plastic in your wallet is about to go the way of the typewriter, the VCR, and the 8-track tape player. When it does, a handful of investors could stand to get very rich. You can join them -- but you must act now. An eye-opening new presentation reveals the full story on why your credit card is about to be worthless -- and highlights one little-known company sitting at the epicenter of an earth-shaking movement that could hand early investors the kind of profits we haven't seen since the dot-com days.
