    Alamy You can never know in advance all the news that will move the market in a given week, but some things you can see coming. From food giants to tech bellwethers, here are some of the things that will help shape the week that lies ahead on Wall Street. Monday — Organic Growth: The market for organic foods has never been hotter, and Annie’s (BNNY) is there to cash in on consumers craving more natural edibles. It makes organic pastas, crackers, frozen pizzas, and other food products. Annie’s reports after the market closes on Monday. It should be another quarter of healthy growth. Analysts see revenue and earnings growing by roughly 20 percent for the quarter that ended in December. The one thing that investors will need to watch out for is that Annie’s has missed Wall Street’s profit targets in the previous two quarters. Tuesday — In Control: One of last month’s big winners was Control4 (CTRL). Shares of the home automation specialist soared 29 percent in January, bucking the market, which took a bit of a tumble. And you don’t have to look too hard to spot the catalyst behind its rally. Google’s (GOOG) acquisition of smart thermostat maker Nest drew attention to Control4 as another play on automated home technology. The thinking here is that if Google is buying into the niche of Web-fueled home automation, other dot-com giants may consider acquiring Control4 to establish a presence in this new battlefield. Control4 reports on Tuesday. It’s unlikely to admit that it’s receiving buyout interest on the heels of Google’s move, but you know it’s going to be asked. Wednesday — The Cisco kid: It may seem hard to believe, but there was a time when Cisco (CSCO) was this country’s most valuable company. Just before the dot-com bubble popped, the leading provider of routers, switches, and other networking gear commanded the market’s largest market cap. Then again, at the time we thought that anything Web-related was worth a whole lot of money, and Cisco was the co
