Can you land 7.2 million paying subscribers, stream more than 170 different digital channels, and still be a Wall Street dud? We'll find out on Monday, when XM Satellite Radio (NASDAQ:XMSR) posts its third-quarter results. The Rule Breakers recommendation is expected to post a loss for the period. The key here will be whether XM sticks to its earlier target of producing positive cash flow on an operating basis for the current quarter.

If it's Tuesday, you can bet that (NASDAQ:UBET) will come through with its third-quarter numbers. Odds are good that the company will address the growing concerns over Congress' recent regulatory crackdown on Internet wagering.

Router rooters will tune in on Wednesday when Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) reports. A few years ago, there was a brief moment in which Cisco was the country's most valuable company. That changed when the technology boom passed and IT spending dried up, but time hasn't made Cisco any less of a bellwether. Analysts expect earnings per share to grow from $0.25 to $0.29. That's respectable bottom-line growth, but it could be even better, because Cisco has beaten Wall Street estimates for six consecutive quarters.

Will it be the Mickey Mouse Club, or will Mickey Mouse get clubbed? Thursday knows; that's when Disney (NYSE:DIS) reports its fiscal fourth-quarter financials. The family entertainment giant has been rolling along on the strength of a revival at ABC and a rejuvenated movie studio, having gobbled up Pixar and savored the runaway success of the Pirates of the Caribbean sequel.

Analysts see plenty to like in the Stock Advisor recommendation. The pros foresee the media giant's profits growing to $0.33 a share, after a $0.23-per-share showing a year earlier.

The week closes with a little fuel, courtesy of Petrobras (NYSE:PBR). Brazilian's leading gas and exploration company has been riding high along with most petroleum-powered stocks lately, and it will be interesting to see how recent price dips will impact the company -- and the industry.

Until next week, I remain,
