Cyber Monday will kick off another busy stretch for retailers next week. Earnings from a number of big names -- including AutoZone (AZO), Five Below (FIVE), and RH (RH) -- will also be in focus. Wall Street will also be eyeing a number of economic reports ahead of the mid-December Fed meeting. While no rate cut is expected this time around, Wall Street will still digest an onslaught of jobs data to get a read on the state of the U.S. labor market.

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.

Monday, Dec. 2, kicks off with Markit's purchasing managers manufacturing index (PMI), the Institute for Supply Management's (ISM) manufacturing index, and construction spending data.
