The trading week kicks off with Sysco (NYSE: SYY) bringing its latest quarterly financials to the table. The country's leading food-service company supplies restaurants, schools, and other institutions with the edibles and essentials they need.

Sprint Nextel
(NYSE: S) reports on Thursday. Wall Street is banking on a slightly narrower deficit.

Until next week, I remain,
