If the 9:30 a.m. EST ringing of the New York Stock Exchange trading bell didn't wake you up, fret not. It's Labor Day. The market takes a holiday and, if possible, you should, too.

The shortened trading week begins with HainCelestial (NASDAQ:HAIN) posting its fourth-quarter results. The maker of healthy and organic foods has been able to ride the wave of consumer awareness in whole foods. Hain has been growing alongside Wild Oats (NASDAQ:OATS) and Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFMI), but even more conventional grocers are now stocking more of Hain's products like Terra Chips snacks and WestSoy soy milk.

Analysts expect Hain to live up to its healthy grub, with profits climbing 15% to $0.23 per share for the period.

Is Global Crossing (NASDAQ:GLBC) back from the brink? The telecommunications specialist that flamed out in spectacular fashion when it filed for bankruptcy in January of 2002 is clawing its way back. The company posted improving second-quarter results last month. Yes, the ink is still red. On this day, the company will discuss the latest quarterly performance at its Global Crossing U.K. subsidiary.

It's Shuffle Master's (NASDAQ:SHFL) time to deal. The Motley Fool Stock Advisor recommendation lives up to its name as the leader in automatic card shufflers. Over the years it has also expanded to provide more casino equipment, like chip sorters and popular table games.

Wall Street is holding out for record results from the company. Earnings should increase to $0.25 a share in its third quarter, after a $0.22-per-share showing a year earlier. Let's hope that the last few quarters have been little more than Shuffle Master sporting a poker face, because the last time the company clocked in ahead of analyst targets was four quarters ago.

Volt Information Services
(NYSE:VOL) does a little bit of everything. It will set you up with a temp. It can install that network upgrade your company has been putting off. As fate would have it, Volt even steps up to the earnings podium this week to post its quarterly numbers.

It should be a good quarter. Investors are expecting Volt's bottom line to nearly double to $0.62 a share from $0.32.

Until next week, I remain,
