NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Last week was loaded with important economic data reports and potential game changers for the stock market. While this week is a little quieter, there are still big earnings reports from retailers and homebuilders.
TheStreet's Brittany Umar breaks down what investors should be watching in the week ahead.
Pep Boys (PBY) starts things off by reporting earnings after the close on Monday. The conference call is scheduled Tuesday morning.
Toll Brothers (TOL) reports earnings before the open on Tuesday. Investors will be anxious to see how higher interest rates have affected housing demand, Umar said.
Costco Wholesale (COST) reports earnings before the open on Wednesday, following a subpar same-store sales report that missed analysts' expectations for November, she added.
On Thursday, the retail sales report for November will be released at 8:30 a.m. EST.
To wrap up the week, the producer price index for the month of November will be released at 8:30 a.m. EST.
