U.S. Markets closed

Apple, Facebook Headline Next Week’s Earnings

Chris Preston

Another week, another record finish for U.S. markets.

The S&P 500 closed at a record 1,759.77, closing Friday with a flourish to finish the week up 0.8%. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial crossed the 15,500 mark.

A week free of government shutdown or debt ceiling worries pushed volatility down to a two-month low. Where the market goes from here could depend on the strength of next week’s earnings.

A number of big-name companies report third-quarter results next week. Apple (AAPL) kicks things off after the bell on Monday, hoping to sustain its recent rebound. The second-largest company in the world, Exxon (XOM) , reports on Thursday.

Other intriguing earnings reports next week include Facebook (FB), Chevron (CVX) and Starbucks (SBUX) .

Here are some other headliners as we enter a busy – and potentially pivotal – earnings week:


  • Apple


  • LinkedIn (LNKD)
  • U.S. Steel (NYSE:X)


  • Comcast (CMCSA)
