Investors have plenty to look forward to next week with plenty economic data that needs unpacking. While Monday will be relatively quiet, Tuesday will feature retail data as well as the import price and home builders indexes. Weekly jobless claims data is due out on Thursday, alongside the Philly Fed index the previous month's leading economic indicators. The week will close out quietly, as no economic data is on tap for the last day of the week.

Earnings season is beginning to wind down slowly but surely but there's a number of retail names slated to report, including blue-chips Home Depot (HD) and Walmart, and other retail giants such as Kohl's (KSS), Macy's (M), and Target (TGT).

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.

Beginning the week, Monday, November 16 comes with the latest Empire State Manufacturing Index data.

Tuesday, November 17 is jam packed with retail, industrial production, capacity utilization, and business inventories data. Additionally, the import price and home builders indexes are on tap.

October's housing and building permits are slated to be reported on Wednesday, November 18, marking another relatively slow day.

Plenty of data is due out on Thursday, November 19, including jobless claims data, the Philly Fed index, and existing home sales. Also set to be reported on is last month's leading economic indicators.
