The Week Ahead: Campbell Soup Leads a Quiet Holiday Week

Jeremy Glaser

Jeremy Glaser: It should be a quiet week for earnings and data ahead of Thanksgiving.

Wide-moat Campbell Soup has been suffering from what analyst Erin Lash describes as "self-inflicted missteps" recently. The firm has been pulling back on marketing and advertising spending to help boost operating margins, but Lash thinks that investing in brand is crucial and that cutting back is not prudent for the long-term health of the business. The firm reports on Tuesday.

Deere is also on tap this week.

Data is fairly sparse with existing home sales on Tuesday and unemployment claims, durable goods orders, and the University of Michigan sentiment gauge on Wednesday.
