NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- With the start of earnings season this week, TheStreet's Brittany Umar, Jill Malandrino and Andrew Krill break down what to be watching.
Monday after the close, Alcoa (AA) reports its earnings results. The company is in the midst of a massive turnaround effort, as aluminum prices remain compressed. With the company's plans to close an Italian plant, it will cost about $0.03 per share, or between $30 million and $35 million.
Wednesday will have investors anxious, with both earnings and the Federal Reserve due up. The FOMC minutes will be closely watched for any hints as to when tapering may commence.
