Alibaba (BABA), AMC Entertainment (AMC), Beyond Meat (BYND), BioNTech (BNTX), Hyatt Hotels (H), Novavax (NVAX), Palantir Technologies (PLTR), SoFi Technologies (SOFI), Sonos (SONO), Tapestry (TPR), Tyson Foods (TSN), Walt Disney (DIS), and Yeti (YETI) are just some of the companies announcing quarterly results.

Below is a list of key market events scheduled for the upcoming week. All economic dates listed below are tentative and subject to change.

Monday, May 9 starts off slow, with only wholesale inventories data and inflation expectations.

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) small-business index is expected to come out on Tuesday, May 10, in addition to real household debt data.

Wednesday, May 11 will bring the CPI and core CPI, as well as the Federal Budget balance.
