Tomorrow will bring earnings results for several big name companies including Bank of America (BAC) and Goldman Sachs (GS). Hopes aren’t especially high, as many US banks have struggled recently – but we’ll know for sure tomorrow. Other big names that will be reporting tomorrow after the bell rings include Alcoa (AA) and CSX (CSX).
