The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 have hit consecutive all-time highs over the course of the last week. Some analysts are worried that the markets may have gone too high too fast, while others are buying in. But what is for sure is that these consecutive wins have not been seen in a long time.

Although earnings season is done for the most part, there are still some key companies left to report in the coming week, and these could potentially help push the markets to new highs.

24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of some of the major companies reporting their quarterly results this week. We have included the consensus earnings estimates from Thomson Reuters and the stock price and trading history, as well as added some additional color on each.
