[video] Quick Take: Apple Begins Busy Earnings Week

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) --  Apple (AAPL) will report fiscal fourth-quarter earnings after the close on Monday. The report will include the company's first week of sales for its new iPhone 5C and 5S. 

The tech titan also raised its guidance to the higher end of its previous range, which called for sales between $34 billion to $37 billion. 

On Tuesday morning, the producer price index (PPI) will be released for the month of September, along with the consumer confidence data for the month of October.

Also on Tuesday morning, Pfizer (PFE), JetBlue (JBLU) and U.S. Steel (X) will report earnings. LinkedIn (LNKD) is scheduled to report after the close. 

General Motors (GM) is scheduled to report on Wednesday morning, followed by Facebook (FB) after the close. The social media leader will try and build on its momentum from last quarter where mobile growth kickstarted a major run higher for share prices.  

On Thursday the Chicago purchasing managers' index data will be released and Starbucks (SBUX) will announce its earnings results. Analysts are looking for 60 cents per share from the coffee giant, 14 cents per share higher than the same period last year. 

Starbucks has topped analysts' expectations in seven of the previous eight quarters.
