Here’s a look at some of the companies the Yahoo Finance team will be watching for you today.

Papa John’s (PZZA) is taking more steps to distance itself from its founder. The board late Sunday ended an agreement with John Schnatter that would have let him still appear as the public face of the company. They also booted him from using office space at headquarters. Schnatter resigned as chairman last week after using a racial slur in a conference call.

Goldman Sachs (GS) may be gearing up for a change at the top. The New York Times says Goldman will name president David Solomon as its next CEO as early as this week. He’d replace Lloyd Blankfein later this year. Blankfein has run the investment bank for 12 years, leading it to record earnings.

A big deal for aerospace giant Lockheed Martin (LMT). It’s reached a handshake agreement to sell 141 new F-35 fighter jets to the Pentagon and U.S. allies. That would be the biggest order yet for the fighters. The price tag for the deal has not been made public, but each F-35 costs about $80 million.

Boeing (BA) is flying high Monday after landing a $4.7 billion order from the delivery company DHL. The order for 14 Boeing 777 Freighter planes came at the start of the Farnborough Airshow in the UK. Airbus also announced a new order for 17 planes by Taiwanese airline StarLux.
