There’s never a dull week on Wall Street. Let’s go over some of the news that will shape the week to come.
The first trading day of the week kicks off with Gencorp Inc (NYSE:GY) posting quarterly results. The aerospace and defense contractor completed its acquisition of Pratt & Whitney’s rocket engine manufacturer Rocketdyne after receiving clearance from the Federal Trade Commission earlier this month. Naturally, Rocketdyne’s performance won’t be baked into the financials.
Analysts see a small deficit on flat revenue growth.
Wall Street sees revenue and earnings soaring 37% and 63%, respectively, at Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:SWHC) on Tuesday.
No matter where you stand on Monsanto Company (NYSE:MON), the results are also expected to be on both sides of the fence. The pros see revenue inching slightly higher, with earnings per share clocking in slightly lower.
Is the world ready for a new handheld gaming console? NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) rolls out its first branded portable gaming device on Thursday. NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) Shield pairs up a high-def screen with a physical controller, and it plays Android apps and streams PC games. It’s a product that may take some getting used to, and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) surprised potential buyers by dropping the retail price from $349 to $299 just a couple of days ago.
You don’t often see a price cut before a product hits the market.
Analysts are banking on a return to profitability after posting a deficit a year earlier. They also see healthy 23% growth. After months of speculation, we’ll finally get some hard numbers on how many of the new smartphones RES.IN MOT.DBA BLACKBERRY (FRA:RI1)’s been selling, and that’s going to move the shares higher or lower after the Friday morning report.
