For the week ahead, we have the big U.S. Employment Report to look forward to on Friday.

In business news, earnings season is starting to wind down, but we still have some good reports this week:

MONDAY: Yum Brands (YUM)
TUESDAY: AFLAC (AFL), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Sirius XM (SIRI)
WEDNESDAY: Merck & Co. (MRK), Disney (DIS), Time Warner (TWX), Baidu (BIDU), Twitter (TWTR)
THURSDAY: Philip Morris (PM), Twenty First Century Fox (FOXA), General Motors (GM), Aetna (AET), Cummins (CMI)
FRIDAY: Cigna (CI)

One thing I will be curious to see is how the health insurers (AET and CI) do, since this will be the first quarter they are reporting after the start of Obamacare. Mind you, I wouldn’t draw any conclusions about Obamacare from this early report, since they could easily improve or deteriorate by the end of 2014.
