The labor market goes under the microscope in the coming week with the U.S. jobs report for July to be released on Friday, Aug. 4, the sixth full month in President Donald Trump's economy. 

A summer lull could feed into the top-line number, pulling the number of jobs added to the U.S. economy to below 200,000 for the third time this year. Economists surveyed by FactSet anticipate 180,500 jobs to have been added to the U.S. economy in July, still a solid pace though slower than the rate of 222,000 in June. 

On the plus side, the unemployment rate is expected to fall by 10 basis points to 4.3%. Hourly earnings are expected to have increased 0.3% month on month, picking up from a 0.2% growth rate in June. Year over year, hourly earnings growth is targeted to have held at 2.5%. 

Apple Inc. (AAPL - Get Report) will dominate a jam-packed earnings calendar in the coming week. The world's largest company is expected to post earnings of $1.57 a share during its quarter that ended in June, a 10% increase from a year earlier. Sales are forecast to have climbed nearly 6% to $44.9 billion. 

Oil and mining stocks are also in the spotlight this week. Earnings are expected from Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc.  (DO - Get Report)   on Monday; Devon Energy Corp. (DVN - Get Report) , BP PLC (BP - Get Report)  and Phillips 66 (PSX - Get Report) on Tuesday; Marathon Oil Corp. (MRO - Get Report) , Murphy Oil Corp. (MUR - Get Report) , Murphy USA Inc.

(RIG - Get Report)  and Williams Cos. (WMB - Get Report) on Wednesday; and Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK - Get Report)  and Duke Energy Corp. (DUK - Get Report) on Thursday.

"As we prepare for energy earnings season to get into full swing, we remain on the sidelines because we think earnings will be unimpressive, especially regarding guidance, despite numerous top-line beats," said CFRA Research investment strategist Lindsey Bell in a note. "While there are indications that drilling may be slowing near-term and inventories are becoming more aligned, which should benefit oil prices long term, we prefer to wait until the quarter reports are in and more data on the global oil market is released to get more constructive."
