In "What's Ahead on Wall Street" for Thursday, April 28, hundreds of companies will be reporting earnings, but these are the notable ones we're watching.

Before the market opens, Ford Motor (F) , Dow Chemical  (DOW)  and Time Warner Cable  (TWC)  will tell us how they did. In the afternoon, we hear from Amazon  (AMZN) , LinkedIn (LNKD)  and Expedia (EXPE) . When Time Warner Cable reports its latest results, analysts are looking for earnings of $1.74 a share on revenue of over $6 billion. Both the top and bottom lines are expected to increase from a year ago. This comes as federal regulators on Monday approved Charter Communication's  (CHTR)  $55 billion takeover of Time Warner Cable. If the deal is successful, it would create the No. 2 cable provider in the country.

On the economic calendar, we will be seeing GDP numbers and jobless claims. 

Ford Motor, Dow Chemical and Amazon are holdings in Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio. Want to be alerted before Cramer buys or sells F, DOW and AMZN? Learn more now.
