United Natural Foods (UNFI - Get Report) is expected by Wall Street Tuesday to report fiscal fourth-quarter earnings of 51 cents a share on revenue of $1.32 billion.

Zynga (ZNGA - Get Report) disclosed in a regulatory filing Monday that Jeff Karp, the chief revenue and marketing officer at the maker of social games, has resigned.

The company posted a profit of $10.4 million, or 18 cents a share, on revenue of $63.4 million for the three months ended in July, up slightly from year-earlier earnings of $9.1 million, or 17 cents a share, on revenue of $58.3 million. Analysts were looking for earnings of 20 cents a share in the quarter on revenue of $67.9 million.
