Earnings season continues next week, with plenty of important companies set to report results. On Wednesday, Priceline (NASDAQ:BKNG), the leading online travel company, will announce its fourth-quarter numbers. The company's guidance for the quarter was weaker-than-expected, driven by an uncertain macroeconomic environment and currency fluctuations, and investors will be on the lookout for any signs of improvement.
