The Fool Looks Ahead

There's never a dull week on Wall Street. Let's go over some of the news that will shape the week to come.

The new trading week kicks off with a flurry of quarterly reports. Drugmaker Isis Pharmaceuticals (NAS: ISIS) , travel portal (NAS: PCLN) , and security specialist American Science & Engineering (NAS: ASEI) are among the dozens of companies stepping up to the earnings stage.

Hecla Mining (NYS: HL) checks in on Tuesday morning. The country's largest silver producer and oldest precious-metals miner is expected to post a profit of $0.14 a share, comfortably ahead of the $0.11 a share it earned a year earlier.

SodaStream (NAS: SODA) reports on Wednesday. The company behind the popular water-carbonating system and soda syrups went public a year ago, and it remains one of the lucky recent debutantes that's still trading above their IPO prices.

China's leading social-networking website reports on Thursday, but this is probably not the way that Renren (NYS: RENN) mapped it out. The company went public at $14 just six months ago, and it's already trading for less than half of its debut price. A stiff valuation and concerns over China's socially restrictive ways have rained on Renren's parade.

Fridays are sleepy on the earnings front, but that's not stopping D.R. Horton (NYS: DHI) from reporting. Real estate developers may spook some investors, but D.R. Horton is actually projected to post a decent profit this time around, reversing a year-ago deficit.

Until next week, I remain,
