The broad markets hit new highs last week, even though the fourth-quarter earnings reporting season is all but over. A few stragglers are still lining up to report this week. Most of the major companies reporting are retailers, and we have created a separate preview for those companies. Here, 24/7 Wall St. has put together some of the other major companies reporting their quarterly results this week, most being tech companies, with a couple of exceptions.
