Markets have continued to remain mixed during a time of national unrest. Protests have been erupting across the country and more political bombshells continue to drop. Despite the political agenda and err of uncertainty, stocks reaming in the spotlight heading into the new weeks ahead. Well over 90% of the S&P 500 members have reported their latest earnings results, but there are still several stand-out reports to anticipate. Stocks to watch this week include Joey New York Inc (OTCMKTS:JOEY), DryShips Inc. (NASDAQ:DRYS), and FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:FALC).
Joey New York Inc (OTCMKTS:JOEY) through its wholly owned subsidiary BotoxLABB offers injectable aesthetic beauty treatments.

During August, shares of Joey New York managed to climb from roughly $0.31 to highs of $0.865.
