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 begins with New Oriental Education (NYS: EDU) , which will step up with its latest financial report.

Shares of New Oriental got a boost last Monday, after Oppenheimer upgraded the leading provider of private educational services in China. There were accounting concerns raised earlier this summer, but the SEC OKed the consolidation of the company's minority stake in New Oriental China into its financial statements.

Sirius XM Radio (NAS: SIRI) pumps up the volume on Tuesday.

The satellite-radio provider already revealed strong subscriber growth during the third quarter, but now the market will see whether it raises guidance for its other metrics. The company is also likely to address the pending departure of CEO Mel Karmazin.

Garmin (NAS: GRMN) will try to find its way on Wednesday.

Life hasn't been easy on the GPS giant. Too many cars and smartphones come with free or nearly free ways to get around. However, Garmin has managed to excel in other outdoor gadgetry. Analysts still see a dip in profitability when it reports, but don't assume that Garmin is going away just because there's an app for that now.

(NAS: SBUX) pours out fresh quarterly results on Thursday. How will its new Verismo one-cup brewer affect comps in the coming quarter? It just opened its first location in India. How's that playing out?

The baron of baristas will have plenty to say.

The week closes out with Alpha Natural Resources (NYS: ANR) reporting. Coal stocks are improving this month as investments, but the industry is coming off what appears to be a dreadful quarter. Analysts see Alpha Natural posting a sharp loss on Friday, reversing a year-ago profit.

Even though Sirius XM is one of the market's biggest winners since bottoming out three years ago, there is still some healthy upside to be had if things go right for it -- and plenty of room for it to fall if things don't.
