It's not a perfect world out there for investors.

Major market indexes may be near multiyear highs, but this week promises a ton of economic data that can rattle the rally. Unless you're convinced that the metrics of durable goods orders, personal income and spending, and the final adjustment of GDP for the second quarter will all be rosy, you're probably one of the growing number of investors who fear a market pullback is coming sooner rather than later.

I recently went over some of the companies that are expected to post lower quarterly profits when they report this week.  

Thankfully, they're the exceptions and not the rule. Let's go over some publicly traded companies that are expected to stand tall this week by posting year-over-year improvement on the bottom line.
