Earnings from Dow components and the technology space will highlight Monday's calendar, while only one piece of economic data is due. Among earnings, Corning ( GLW), McDonald's ( MCD), Black & Decker ( BDK) and Halliburton ( HAL) are expected. Numbers are also on tap from Verizon ( VZ), Tyson ( TSN), American Express ( AXP) and VMware ( VMW). The economic calendar features only new homes sales for December from the Census Bureau. On TheStreet.com, Ted Reed will discuss a ticket-pricing change taking place at some airlines, and Nicholas Yulico will examine whether Home Depot ( HD) is a good buy right now.
