Monsanto, Rite Aid and More Earnings Kicking Off the New Year
The year is coming to an end and the markets are holding near all-time highs — not a bad way to start 2018. While most people are taking vacations during this time, we might not expect to see many companies reporting earnings until later in January. However there are a few big names coming out this week to kick off the new year.
