3 Stocks to Watch Next Week: Priceline, T-Mobile, and Wal-Mart

Earnings season continues next week, with plenty of important companies set to report results. On Wednesday, Priceline , the leading online travel company, will announce its fourth-quarter numbers. The company's guidance for the quarter was weaker-than-expected, driven by an uncertain macroeconomic environment and currency fluctuations, and investors will be on the lookout for any signs of improvement.

Also on Wednesday, wireless carrier T-Mobile will report its results. The company's aggressive promotional campaigns have gained it millions of subscribers, and guidance calls for another big increase in subscribers during the fourth quarter.

Rounding out the week, retail behemoth Wal-Mart will report its fourth-quarter results on Thursday. With the company making major investments in an effort to boost wages and grow its e-commerce business, investors have been displeased with guidance calling for a decline in earnings this year.

Wal-Mart stock has been hammered over the past year due to the company's guidance for a steep decline in earnings this year. With the stock still about 25% off its 52-week high, and with a dividend yield of about 3%, here's why one Fool thinks that Wal-Mart might be a bargain .
