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 Majesco Entertainment (NAS: COOL) reporting its quarterly results. The video-game publisher saw its shares nearly triple last year, propelled by the success of its Zumba Fitness. Despite a disappointing quarterly report in January, shares of Majesco are also trading slightly higher so far through 2012. We'll see whether it can keep the workout working out.
VisionChina Media (NAS: VISN) -- a Chinese provider of televised marketing on mass transportation systems -- checks in on Tuesday. Analysts see VisionChina posting a small profit, reversing a rather sizeable deficit from the same quarter a year earlier.
Vera Bradley (NYS: VRA) reports on Wednesday. The ritzy handbag and travel-gear maker went public two years ago at $16. It has gone on to more than double in price.
Middleby (NAS: MIDD) heats up on Thursday. The company makes industrial ovens and other cooking equipment found in the back of restaurants and commissaries. Wall Street figures that Middleby's profitability will grow 9% to $1.30 a share.
The final trading day of the week finds ReneSola (NYS: SOL) hoping to shine. It won't. Solar-energy stocks have taken a beating this earnings season, and it's not a surprise to see last year's quarterly profit reverse itself into an unfortunate loss.
