NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- Earnings have slowed down and economic data is becoming more and more important as the
Federal Reserve announcement is quickly approaching later this month.
TheStreet's Brittany Umar, Lindsey Bell and Andrew Krill prep us for this week ahead.
Starting off the holiday-shortened week is
(HRB), which will report earnings on Tuesday after the close.
(CIEN) will report Wednesday before the open and
(DG) reports during market hours at 10 a.m. EDT.
After the close on Thursday, it starts to get busy, with
Smith & Wesson Holding
(BLOX) all reporting earnings.
Bell added that Infoblox has doubled in 2013, but according to the options market, still looks to have upside ahead, following the high expectations for this quarter.
will report earnings on Friday morning, that's far from most investors' radar, with the nonfarm payrolls report for the month of August due out at 8:30 a.m. EDT.
It's the last big economic report before the Fed meeting later this month and could be the pivotal datapoint in the decision over tapering, Krill said.
