With U.S. markets shuttered on Thursday for Thanksgiving, and closing early on Friday, next week's economic calendar is relatively light. Wednesday will be the busiest session by far, highlighted by the release of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting minutes. As far as earnings reports go, farm equipment manufacturer Deere & Company (NYSE:DE) is perhaps the highest-profile name on the docket, while a number of retail stocks could move. Among the retailers scheduled to report earnings are GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) and Urban Outfitters, Inc. (NASDAQ:URBN).

Below is a brief list of some key market events scheduled for the upcoming week. All earnings dates listed below are tentative and subject to change. Please check with each company's respective website for official reporting dates.

The week kicks off on Monday, Nov. 21, with a relatively empty economic calendar. Canadian Solar (CSIQ), Jack in the Box (JACK), Palo Alto Networks (PANW), Tyson Foods (TSN), and Weibo (WB) are scheduled to report earnings.

Slated for Tuesday, Nov. 22 is existing home sales data. Stepping up to the earnings stage will be Barnes & Noble (BKS), Burlington Stores (BURL), Campbell Soup (CPB), Chico's (CHS), Dollar Tree (DLTR), DSW Inc. (DSW), GME, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE), Hormel Foods (HRL), HP Inc (HPQ), Seadrill (SDRL), Signet Jewelers (SIG), and URBN.
