The third week of May will be an admittedly slow one, but there's still plenty to keep an eye on. As it has been for the past two months, all eyes will be on the weekly jobless claims report on Thursday, as Wall Street weighs the impact the coronavirus outbreak has wrought on the U.S. economy. Investors continue to fret over the possibilities surrounding the opening of the economy in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Major earnings being announced include reports from blue-chip retailers Walmart (WMT) and Home Depot (HD), as well as Target (TGT) and chip name Nvidia (NVDA). 

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

On Monday, May 18 begins the week with only the NAHB home builders index coming in as far as economic data is concerned. Additionally, Baidu (BIDU), International Game Technology (IGT), iQIYI (IQ), and Sea (SE) will report earnings.
