We've got another huge week of earnings ahead as more major companies come out with their quarterly financials. Retailers that traditionally end their fiscal years in January to fully account for the holiday shopping season dominate the list with their October quarter reports. Stragglers from the more common September quarters will also be showcasing their numbers.

Gap (NYSE:GPS), Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) and Limited (NYSE:LTD) all announce this week -- and should shed some light on the trends they see as they head into their seasonally strongest period.

Even retailers that typically march to different drummers like Home Depot (NYSE:HD) and office supply chain Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) will post. These results will be interesting as proxies for the housing market and the state of corporate spending, respectively.

On Thursday it will be Disney's (NYSE:DIS) turn to open up its fiscal kingdom, and save some room for Krispy Kreme (NYSE:KKD). The fast-growing doughnut maker that readers of Motley Fool Stock Advisor ingested a few months back reports on Friday.

Stock Advisor subscribers might also be interested in checking out what TiVo (NASDAQ:TIVO) has to say when it reports this week.
