Monday
If you miss your alarm clock going off, don't bank on Wall Street's opening bell to do the trick. All of the exchanges are closed, in observance of Labor Day.

Ironic, I know.

Tuesday
The abridged trading week begins with a few companies peeling back their quarterly curtains. Auto-service company Pep Boys (NYSE:PBY), water jet machine company Flow International, and value-minded retailer Casey's General Stores (NASDAQ:CASY) will all check in with their latest financials. It may seem to be a busy slate, but the market did give you that extra day to rest up.

Wednesday
Bling is the thing on this day. Signet Jewelers (NYSE:SIG) and Zale (NYSE:ZLC) step up to the display case. Zale was supposed to report a week earlier, but pushed back its release date. It's a lousy move for Zale, because investors will compare Zale's numbers -- likely deficit-riddled -- with those of the profitable Signet.

Thursday
National Semiconductor (NYSE:NSM) reports. Analysts expect the analog power giant to earn $0.06 a share for the quarter, well shy of the $0.33 a share it generated a year ago. Also, optical specialist Finisar (NASDAQ:FNSR) is expected to report a break-even performance.

Friday
Summer isn't exactly warm soup season, but Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB) is still projected to post a profit of $0.26 a share for its latest quarter, the same as it earned a year earlier.

When the food giant answers questions during its conference call, would they be considered canned responses? I'm sorry: That was very cream of corny of me.

Until next week, I remain,
