There's never a dull week on Wall Street. Let's go over some of the news that will shape the week to come.

The market is closed in observance of Washington's birthday, so take a break from CNBC's scrolling ticker tape. If you're hankering for something new, fire up Hulu. Chipotle Mexican Grill's (NYSE: CMG  ) Farmed and Dangerous -- a sitcom that skewers the corporate giants making agricultural chemicals -- will make its debut on Monday.

Hulu will then introduce three subsequent Farmed and Dangerous episodes on subsequent Mondays.

MannKind  (NASDAQ: MNKD  ) reports quarterly results on Tuesday. MannKind has turned heads with the potential of inhalable insulin, but the path to acceptance has been bumpy.

Don't put too much weight on the actual financials. Analysts see MannKind posting a quarterly deficit on negligible revenue, and it has posted larger losses than Wall Street was expecting in three of the past four quarters.

Tesla Motors  (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) pulls up on Wednesday. The electric-car maker was one of last year's best-performing stocks, and after a slow start it has hit a new all-time high this past week. Ramping up production of its Model S sedan, building out its network of complimentary charging stations, and plans to start rolling out the Model X crossover have gotten investors excited about the potential of plug-in vehicles.  

(NASDAQ: GRPN  ) has come a long way. The flash-sale leader stumbled shortly after its IPO. The appetite of deal seekers cooled, and Groupon's plan to expand aggressively overseas backfired. Groupon's in better shape now, largely because it made the most of its expanding list of merchants by pitching them on enterprise solutions and credit card processing.

Groupon still isn't back to its original IPO price of $20, but it has nearly quadrupled in value since bottoming out in late 2012. It reports on Thursday, and analysts see Groupon posting its fourth consecutive profitable quarter on a double-digit uptick in revenue.

The trading week closes out with Eldorado Gold  (NYSE: EGO  ) reporting quarterly results on Friday morning. Gold took a breather in 2013, and that's pinching miners and related producers, since extraction costs remain relatively the same. 

Analysts see Eldorado posting a modest drop in revenue and an even larger plunge on the bottom line.
