The week begins with Pep Boys ( PBY) reporting earnings after the close on Monday. Investors will be looking to see how the restructuring efforts have gone and if its new consumer focus is driving sales.

Tuesday will feature LDK Solar ( LDK). The company is not expected to beat analyst expectations because negative margins continue to deteriorate.

Thursday's big news will come when retail sales are released. The report will shed some light on what the recent consumer spending trends have been. Also reporting will be Smithfield Foods ( SFD). The U.S. Congress is currently scrutinizing a Chinese company's planned $4.7 billion takeover of the U.S.'s largest pork producer.
