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.
