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 Ferrellgas Partners (NYS: FGP) posting its latest quarterly results.

The propane transporter attracts income investors with its beefy 10.4% yield, but don't expect a meaty profit when it reports on Monday morning. This is a very seasonal business, and this is the lull. Ferrellgas is fine posting a quarterly deficit during its fiscal fourth quarter. It should more than make that back through the balance of the year.

Resources Connection (NAS: RECN) checks in on Tuesday. Analysts see the professional services provider earning $0.12 a share in its latest quarter, twice as much as it earned a year earlier.

OCZ Technology (NYS: OCZ) reports in the middle of the week. The maker of solid-state drives has already had a disappointing summer, issuing warnings that find analysts expecting OCZ to post a widening deficit on Wednesday.

International Speedway
(NAS: ISCA) makes its quarterly pit stop on Thursday.

Analysts see the motorsports promoter behind the Daytona International Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, and Michigan International Speedway posting a quarterly profit of $0.08 a share.

The week closes out quietly on the earnings front, so let's go to the movies.

Disney's (NYS: DIS) Frankenweenie may be the top draw at the multiplex. Tim Burton's latest stop-motion animated film opens its theatrical run on Friday.
