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 market is closed for the Memorial Day holiday, but that doesn't mean that exchanges overseas will be silent.

Focus Media (NAS: FMCN) -- a marketing titan in China with a fleet of ad-spewing monitors, poster frames, and billboards -- reports its latest quarterly results.

Sanderson Farms (NAS: SAFM) is one of the few companies reporting on a quiet Tuesday that kicks off the abridged trading week. Analysts see the poultry products producer reporting a healthy profit, reversing a year-ago loss.

Taomee Holdings (NYS: TAOM) reports on Wednesday.

The name isn't supposed to ring a bell.

Taomee is big in China, though. It's the company behind the kid-friendly animated Mole's World and Seer franchises that the company has successfully monetized through online virtual worlds, books, TV shows, and movies.

(NYS: MOV) lets its shareholders know what time it is on Thursday.

It's easy to be worried. Another fashion-forward watchmaker had its clock rung after posting disappointing quarterly results earlier this month. The market's still upbeat about Movado's chances here to improve its bottom line.

The final trading day of the week is usually quiet, especially this time of year.

Thermon Group Holdings (NYS: THR) won't be silent. The provider of heat tracing solutions for process industries will chime in on Friday morning, making it one of the first companies to report in the month of June.

June already? Time flies.
