Earnings season is upon us, and some big names are reporting results next week.

With earnings season ramping up, next week is an exciting one for investors. Streaming giant Netflix (NFLX -1.85%) is scheduled to report its fourth-quarter earnings on Tuesday, and with much of its International expansion now complete, the groundwork for future growth has been laid. Also reporting on Tuesday is International Business Machines (IBM 0.90%), and with currency issues still weighing on the company's results, a 15th consecutive quarter of declining revenue is in the cards. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD -1.93%) rounds out Tuesday's slate of results, and with PC sales continuing to slump, the company is struggling with mounting losses.

Netflix announced its ambitious global expansion plans in early 2015, aiming to make its service available in 200 countries by the end of 2016. At CES earlier this month, Netflix announced that it had just gone live in 130 new countries, completing much of this plan well ahead of schedule. Here's everything you need to know about what this means for Netflix in 2016 and beyond.

International Business Machines is currently engaged in a transformation, investing heavily in areas like analytics and cognitive computing. Despite the recent revenue declines, IBM is not falling apart, as the headline numbers may suggest. Instead, currency is making IBM's results appear worse than they really are.

Advanced Micro Devices plans to launch new GPUs and CPUs later this year, hoping the products will turn the company around. Here are some details on AMD's upcoming Polaris graphics architecture, and here's a look at what 2016 holds for AMD.
