It's hard to predict how the upcoming earnings season will go, which kicks off this week. A record number of companies are giving guidance. Still there are high hopes for results, which begin in the coming days from JP Morgan Chase (JPM) , Wells Fargo  (WFC) and Citigroup (C) . This week will be a holiday shortened one as the markets are closed Friday for the Good Friday holiday. U.S. trucking giants Swift (SWFT)  and Knight  (KNX) are merging. According to CNBC, this will combine two of the largest trucking companies in the United States in a deal that could be worth $5 billion. Swift and Knight are both based in Phoenix and are among the top carriers in the highly fragmented market for truckload services. Google (GOOGL)  is investing $800 million into LG Electronics to help them make the new OLED screens for smartphones. Electronic Times says the search giant wants to make the investment to secure a stable supply of the displays for the Pixel smartphones.
