The new trading week kicks off with Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE) on stage. The publishing software juggernaut is expected to grow its earnings by 24% to $0.46 a share for the quarter. I can't blame you for holding out for a little more than that, though. Adobe has beaten Wall Street's profit targets in all but one quarter over the past five years. That is the kind of trend you don't bet against.

Best Buy
(NYSE: BBY) isn't used to going the wrong way, yet that is how Tuesday may find the consumer electronics superstore giant. Analysts see earnings falling slightly to $0.36 a share for the company. Tune in, if only to hear what the company sees as retailing trends for hot and cold product categories.

(NYSE: FDX) and CarMax (NYSE: KMX) step up on Wednesday with their quarterly reports. The only thing that would make this more entertaining would be if there was an auto junkyard called CarEx and a buffet restaurant chain called FedMax.

Jelly giant Smucker (NYSE: SJM) reports on Thursday, just days after moving on its $3.3 billion deal to acquire Procter & Gamble's (NYSE: PG) coffee titan, Folgers. Like most mature food companies, don't expect breakneck growth here. Analysts see a profit of $0.78 a share for the period, just 4% ahead of last year's showing.

(NYSE: WGO) pulls in to wrap up the trading week. Gas-chugging recreational vehicles can't be an easy sell in this climate, but we'll let the company speak for itself. The market is already braced for earnings to fall sharply. The real test will be if Winnebago can remain profitable.

Until next week, I remain,
