Today will bring a slew of economic indicators, including nonfarm payrolls and updates on the unemployment rate and average hourly earnings. The Markit services PMI, the ISM services index, factory orders, and revised core capital goods orders are on the calendar as well.

The following companies are slated to release corporate earnings today, December 3:

Bank of Montreal (NYSE:BMO -- $105.18) provides diversified financial services primarily in North America. Bank of Montreal will report its Q3 earnings of 2021 before the bell today.

Looking ahead to next week, the end of the year is drawing closer and the holidays are in full swing, with the eight days of Hanukkah well underway and Christmas quickly approaching. However, next week is relatively tame in terms of earnings and economic data. Though earnings season is definitely slowing down, there are still quarterly reports coming up next week, from big names including AutoZone (AZO), Broadcom (AVGO), Chewy (CHWY), Dave & Buster's (PLAY), RH (RH), Stitch Fix (SFIX), Toll Brothers (TOL), and United Natural Foods (UNFI). 

All economic dates listed here are tentative and subject to change.
