In a week that wraps up with Halloween, one could argue that this will be a week of monster earnings report. Well, it's a week for Monster's (NASDAQ:MNST) earnings too. The online employment specialist will bare its teeth when it posts its third-quarter results tomorrow afternoon.

The company, which weathered the dot-com meltdown without sacrificing its traditional Super Bowl ads (we'll see the sixth annual installment in a few months) actually thrived early into the economic downturn as its job site became a popular destination. While Monster then went on to stumble, it has bounced back, with its shares more than tripling off their 52-week lows. How well is it faring in avenging last year's loss? We will soon know.

Another report that bears watching this week is Janus (NYSE:JNS). Embroiled in the latest wave of mutual fund scandals, it will be interesting to see the company address the impact of the latest news on the family of funds. The industry's improprieties have made a great argument for taking on the empowering role of being an individual investor.

Other well-known companies reporting this week include ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), Verizon (NYSE:VZ), and Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE:ADM). It will also be a big week for defense contractors as Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Boeing (NYSE:BA), and Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) flex their quarterly muscles.

So don't let the bed bugs bite. It's going to be a Monster week for earnings.
