It will be a busy yet abbreviated week, with markets closed on Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Earnings season will continue to pick up steam next week, with a number of Dow stocks in focus, including IBM (IBM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), and Intel (INTC). Starbucks (SBUX) and Ford Motor (F) will also be in the earnings spotlight, as well as several airline names. It will be relatively quiet on the economic data front, as traders absorb the Fed balance sheet and more housing data. 

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. 

On Monday, Jan. 21, U.S. markets will be closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
