Food, fun and films will rule the week that lies ahead. Let's take a closer look.
What's eating SYSCO
You would think that a company so in touch with eating habits would know how to grow organically, right? All kidding aside, though, SYSCO is huge. If you don't know the company, it's probably because you haven't seen the company's delivery trucks parked behind some of your favorite eateries dropping off the edibles early in the morning. The company had nearly $30 billion in sales last year. Yes, that's a whole lot of grub.

There is still a chance that Disney and Pixar will be able to keep their distributor relationship going, though it obviously won't be as lucrative for Disney as it used to be. Pixar -- and Electronic Arts -- have been winning stock recommendations in the Stock Advisor newsletter service. On Thursday, it will be Pixar's turn to take to the earnings podium.
