Celebrate your financial independence by checking out these stocks that will be lighting firecrackers over the next few trading days.
When you're handling sparklers, make sure you grab them by their unlit end. Not the kind of tip you were looking for? Well, it's the Fourth of July! What did you expect? The stateside markets will be closed.
The abridged trading week starts on Tuesday. Few companies are eager to blurt out their quarterly financials after long trading breaks, so perhaps that's why the biggest company to report on Tuesday will be ADE
The semiconductor-equipment specialist will be wrapping up its fiscal 2005 by producing its fourth-quarter financials. You may not know ADE, but you probably know some of its clients. We're talking about companies such as Seagate
Wait a minute. Why is Ruby Tuesday
The company is still proud of its "Smart Eating" campaign, but going by the televised ad I just saw-- the one pitching the company's colossal burger topped with seasoned shrimp -- I'd say the company is now pandering to Ruby regardless of her girth. That's not necessarily a bad strategy. Let's see how it plays out.
Want to get away and take everything with you? Fleetwood
It's a critical time for the company. Yes, the industry is in much better shape than it was when it bottomed out three years ago. Unfortunately, Fleetwood shares have shed a third of their value over the past year.
We spoke to Winnebago
It's often said that when a stock tanks, it got a haircut. But that's a flawed saying. After all, snip hair away and it's going to grow back. The same doesn't necessarily hold true for stocks. Then again, there is one company that goes in for quite a few haircuts. In fact, when it comes to Regis
As the company behind the Supercuts chain -- along with other scissors-and-shampoo outfits -- Regis has proved to be a steady grower, and successfully profitable, when it comes to its franchised empire that now tops 10,000 locations worldwide. That's why Tom Gardner recommended Regis last year for Motley Fool Stock Advisor subscribers. Well, on Friday, investors will get a chance to hold up the mirror to see how the company's fourth quarter turned out. Will it be a crew cut? Will it be a pompadour? My vote is for a mullet. You know, short in the front, long in the back. It may not be a stylish look these days, but when you're talking financials, it doesn't hurt to pack plenty on the bottom line.
