Wall Street will say goodbye to 2015 -- and possibly "window dress" their portfolios -- next week, ahead of another long holiday weekend. Housing data will once again highlight a relatively light economic docket, and the earnings well will run dry, with no notable names stepping into the spotlight.

The Dallas Fed manufacturing survey will be released on Monday. On the corporate side, Church & Dwight (CHD) will join the S&P 500 Index (SPX) after the close.

Tuesday, 12/29

The Street will digest the S&P/Case-Shiller home price index, as well as the Conference Board's consumer confidence survey.

Data on pending home sales and the weekly crude inventories report are on tap.
