If the market gets off to a squeaky start in the new trading week, it's good to know that WD-40 (NASDAQ:WDFC) is nearby. The company behind the all-purpose lubricant reports its third-quarter results on Monday. Analysts expect profits to climb 12% to $0.47 a share. WD-40 blew past Wall Street's profit targets in the second quarter but did come up short in the two quarters before that.

(NYSE:ZZ) investors hope to wake up after a good night's sleep when the mattress maker reports. Profits should come in flat with the $0.22 per share it earned a year ago. Flat mattresses are better than lumpy ones, though it remains to be seen whether the company is spared the effects of the recent housing downturn.

Why should Sealy make it out unscathed? Well, the International Sleep Products Association claims that bedding sales have risen at an annual clip of 6.3% since 1984, with just one down year (in 2001). I'm a little more jaded than that, but maybe that's because I believe that the bed bugs do bite.

Biotech giant Genentech (NYSE:DNA) steps up with its second-quarter report. Yes, there are several biotechs out there that have years of profitability and somewhat chunky pipelines. The bottom line at Genentech is projected to climb by 27% to hit $0.71 a share. 

We check in with Marriott (NYSE:MAR), and the numbers will be nice to crunch, though everyone will be wondering about industry consolidation after the recent Hilton (NYSE:HLT) buyout.

Then you have Shaw Communications (NYSE:SJR) wrapping up the week with its quarterly report. Pros expect the Canadian broadcasting and telecommunications services company to show a sharp 48% jump in profitability, earning $0.37 a share.

Until next week, I remain,
