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 investors how they did. Then in the afternoon, Amazon.com ( AMZN) , LinkedIn ( LNKD) and Expedia ( EXPE) will report results. When Time Warner Cable reports, analysts are looking for earnings of $1.74 a share on revenue of over $6 billion. Both the top and bottom line are expected to go up from a year ago. This comes as federal regulators on Monday approved Charter Communication ( CHTR) 's $55 billion-dollar takeover of Time Warner Cable. If the deal is successful, it would create the nation's number two U.S. cable provider. On the economic calendar, the government will release GDP numbers and jobless claims.
