High fiber and fiber optics will leave their mark on the week that lies ahead. Let's take a closer look.

It's Memorial Day. As you celebrate and commemorate the holiday in a way that you deem fit, don't bother pulling up stock quotes or checking on domestic companies posting earnings. The market is closed. Really. Come back tomorrow.

The abridged trading week opens organically on Tuesday. United Natural Foods (NASDAQ:UNFI) will be reporting its fiscal-third-quarter results. Investors have been loading up on the stock as the way to piggyback on the success of earthy grocer Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFMI), but the provider of healthy foodstuffs has also had its setbacks. Three months ago, shares of United Natural Foods were dinged after the company missed its second-quarter targets. Then again, the stock has more than doubled over the past two years. That's certainly one way to eat healthy.

Remember when network-equipment maker ADC Telecommunications (NASDAQ:ADCTD) and its peers were looking to rule our fiber-optic future? The sector hasn't been getting much love from the market in recent years, and it took a 1-for-7 reverse stock split to get ADC out of the penny-stock gutter. Then again, the winds may be a-changing. Last month, ADC raised its second-quarter guidance. The company now expects revenue from continuing operations to come in between $292 million to $297 million, or 12% higher than it had originally expected. ADC also delighted investors by forecasting a profitable showing of $0.03 a share, a penny above Wall Street's projections. So it's a pretty fair bet to say that those numbers should stick pretty close to the mark when the company steps up to the podium come Wednesday. Let's hope that the next thing the company has to reverse is the market's negative opinion on the telecommunications sector.

If you're going to be a one-trick pony, you'd better be sure that it's one heck of a trick. For Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO), that workhorse has been its Grand Theft Auto franchise. The edgy series may be morally bankrupt, but "bankrupt" in the financial sense is the last word that would come to mind when describing Take-Two's coffers -- thanks to the amazing success of GTA.

On Thursday, Take-Two will come clean with its fiscal-second-quarter report. It's typically a dull one, and back in March the company announced that it was looking to post a loss of $0.20 a share for the period. But investors will want to tune in for what the company sees happening through the rest of the year. What does it think of the next generation of gaming consoles? Is it upbeat about any new product lines that will help the company diversify as Activision (NASDAQ:ATVI) and THQ (NASDAQ:THQI) have over the years? It's always good to enter a conference call with questions worth asking.

If you want a stock that brings home the bacon, literally, then maybe Smithfield Farms (NYSE:SFD) is just what you're looking for. As the company behind brands like John Morrell, Lykes, and Patrick Cudahy, the company is the leading producer of pork products. With higher hog prices fueling a market-thumping quarter last time out, expectations are running high for Smithfield to keep feeding at the trough. Wall Street is looking for the company to produce meaty earnings of $0.73 a share on Friday. If it tops that? Well, its investors will just be in hog heaven.
