Next week will be a holiday-shortened one, with markets closed Monday for Presidents Day. The action picks up after that with earnings reports from Walmart (WMT), CVS Health (CVS), Roku (ROKU), and Universal Display (OLED) all on tap. The abbreviated week has a central bank theme, too, with the Fed minutes due on Wednesday, and several Fed speakers set to speak.

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, Feb. 18, markets will be closed for Presidents Day.
