Pros: Earnings to Watch Next Week

On top of midterm elections Tuesday and the possibility of quantitative easing next week, there are a host of companies reporting earnings. These are the earnings reports the "Fast Money" traders will be looking for:

Kraft: The food giant is scheduled to report quarterly results on Tuesday and Metropolitan Capital Advisors president Karen Fineraman is interested to hear what it says about input costs. Kraft's tailwind is its recent acquisition of Cadbury, she said, but Northfield, Ill.-based company is now facing some headwinds. For that reason, she's sold some shares of KFT because there's not as much risk-reward.

Qualcomm : Guy Adami of Drakon Capital is looking forward to this technology company's earnings report after the bell on Wednesday. The stock's had a good run, he said, so investors should hope for a pullback after earnings. If that doesn't happen, investors may have missed his run from the low $30s to the high $40 range where the stock is now.

Archer Daniels Midland: Being as ethanol prices have climbed with corn prices, Brian Kelly of Kanundrum Capital wants to hear baout ADM's ethanol production. Kelly thinks a lot of people have missed that part of the Decatur, Ill.-based company's story, so he's interested to get more information. ADM reports Tuesday.

CVS Caremark : Shares of this company haven't traded well lately, said Finerman. She likes the name and looks forward to its earnings release on Tuesday.
