The new trading week kicks off with Sykes (NASDAQ:SYKE) posting its fourth-quarter results. Will the outsourcing specialist speak for itself or will it bring in someone else to discuss the numbers? Lame joke, I agree -- I need better material. Then again, maybe Sykes needs better material; analysts expect the company to post a profit of $0.21 a share for the period, essentially flat with last year's $0.22 per-share showing.

Get your tokens, surprisingly tasty pizzas, and rodent-ready cameras ready come Tuesday because Chuck E. Cheese parent CEC Entertainment (NYSE:CEC) reports. The purveyor of noisy kid magnets has had a few hiccups with sour promotions in the past, but Wall Street is looking for a little growth out of the former Motley Fool Hidden Gems recommendation this time around.

It's TiVo (NASDAQ:TIVO) time! No one is expecting the digital video recorder pioneer to turn a profit in its latest quarter. Wall Street actually expects the company to post a steeper loss. However, a flurry of patent-licensing deals and a recent deal to deliver movies online through (NASDAQ:AMZN) is starting to kick up interest in this long-standing Stock Advisor pick.

Will Costco's (NASDAQ:COST) earnings be as big as some of the bulk packages it sells at its warehouse club? We'll find out on Thursday morning. Analysts see the company earning $0.66 a share for its fiscal second quarter. That would be a slight improvement from the $0.62 per share it earned a year earlier.

Costco is reporting a day after rival BJ's Wholesale Club (NYSE:BJ) steps up to the plate. So if you follow Stock Advisor selection Costco -- or the niche in general -- it should be a busy week for you. Just watch your back as you wheel out with that 50-pound box of Lucky Charms. They can be magically back-breaking.

If the Costco and BJ's reports leave you pumped for more, Big Lots (NYSE:BIG) finishes up the week with its financial report. Big Lots isn't a membership-based warehouse club like the others, but its collection of marked down overstocks and closeouts certainly make it a bellwether for thrifty retailing.

Until next week, I remain,
