On Tap Today: Gillette, Honeywell Report Earnings; December Durable Goods Orders Released

On the heels of Alan Greenspan's less-than-riveting testimony yesterday to the Senate Budget Committee, today's recipe calls for a dash of earnings and a pinch of economic data

Today's earnings lineup is bolstered by household product-maker Gillette (G) and tech conglomerate Honeywell (HON). On Monday, Gillette appointed a new chairman and CEO in James Kilts, the former Nabisco big-wig. As of yesterday's close, shares of Gillette were up 0.4% trading at $33.63

Honeywell, fresh off its recent deal with General Electric (GE), finished down 0.13% at $47.31.

On the economic front, the Help Wanted Index and durable goods orders are due out this morning. Durable goods are considered a key factory-sector indicator and typically moves markets whereas the help wanted index is a virtual rubber stamp.

All in all, a relatively quiet day for earnings season.
