Another 'Up' Week Ahead?: Weekend Reading

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) --Good Sunday afternoon, and welcome to another edition of Weekend Reading. First a look back at the week that just finished, then a look forward to the week ahead, and, finally, a summary of articles and papers worth reading.

´╗┐For the week, the Dow ended up 0.1 percent, and the S&P 500 gained 0.5 percent. While by no means spectacular, it was another up week in a string of such things, dating back to the despair of a month or so ago. Most of this continues to be about natural market cycles -- things inevitably turn when people think that they can't -- and somewhat "less bad" than expected economic data.

Turning to economic indicators, retail sales are due Tuesday, industrial production on Wednesday, the Producer Price Index plus jobless claims are Thursday and then we have CPI and consumer confidence Friday. Friday also marks the end of the "quadruple witching".

Turning to earnings, next week will see reports from Best Buy (BBY - Get Report), FedEx (FDX), Kroger (KR), and Oracle (ORCL - Get Report), among others.

Finally, here are some articles and papers worth reading:
