There's never a dull week on Wall Street. Let's go over some of the news that will shape the week to come.

Mandalay Digital Group (NASDAQ:APPS) kicks off the new trading week with fresh financials before the market opens for trading on Monday. Don't confuse this with the casino operator. Mandalay Digital Group watches over Digital Turbine, a platform that offers wireless carriers ways to monetize their mobile content. 

Mandalay is still in the red, but at least one analyst sees it turning a profit during the new fiscal year that recently began. 

CalAmp (NASDAQ:CAMP) has become a leader in the "Internet of Things" revolution. And why not? It's a strong player in machine-to-machine communication at a time when more and more devices are sharing data with one another. CalAmp's mobile resource management tools are growing in popularity, and that's likely to continue in the near term.

Analysts see modest top- and bottom-line growth when it reports fiscal first-quarter results on Tuesday, but Wall Street also sees that growth gradually accelerating through at least the following year. If it doesn't pan out maybe it can use some of that M2M (that's machine-to-machine) magic to convince the market that it's doing just fine.

Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ) will raise a glass to toast Mr. Market on Wednesday, when it reports quarterly results. From Mondavi wines to its roles as the stateside importer of Corona, Modelo, and other faraway beers, Constellation Brands is always up for a good pour. 

Investors have been warming up to Constellation Brands. The stock hit an all-time high on Wednesday. Analysts see sharp gains on both ends of the income statement on Wednesday, but that doesn't mean Wall Street is getting giddy about the buzz. Constellation Brands has beaten analyst estimates in each of the three previous quarters.

International Speedway (NASDAQ:ISCA) is the only major publicly traded company slated to report results on Thursday. It's easy to see why most companies are steering clear of Thursday, since the market is closed on Friday in observance of Independence Day.

International Speedway is the motorsports promoter behind several iconic race tracks, including Daytona International Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. Wall Street's holding out for a profit of $0.49 a share when it reports. It did come up short in its previous quarter, but it had beaten Wall Street income estimates pretty consistently in several quarters before that.
