Recliners in every sense of the word will color in the week that lies ahead.

The new trading week kicks off with a look at La-Z-Boy (NYSE:LZB). The stock has mirrored one of its recliners, with the stock trading at roughly a third of where it was during its September peak. Analysts see La-Z-Boy posting its fourth consecutive quarterly loss Monday. Let's see if the company can remember where the lever is to get back up.

(NASDAQ:ADBE) and Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) are two of the bellwethers checking in Tuesday. They may be market darlings, but both the publishing software giant and the leading consumer electronics superstore are projected to post declines in quarterly profitability.

Speedy deliverer FedEx (NYSE:FDX) reports Wednesday. Investors already know that the company will write down its assets by a whopping $1.2 billion this quarter. The real test for FedEx will be how it's coping in an era where business documents are being transported digitally and once-dormant fuel prices are again inching higher.

(NYSE:WGO) and J.M. Smucker (NYSE:SJM) lead Thursday's cast of reporting companies. Both the RV roller and the jelly belly are expected to post worse results than they did a year ago, with Winnebago seen taking a big loss.

Used car retailer CarMax (NYSE:KMX) pulls up Friday. Will it be another lemon to sour up your weekend? It could be. Wall Street sees the haggle-free retailer earning just $0.03 a share for its fiscal first quarter. It delivered net income of $0.13 a share last year. Will the shuttering of several new car showrooms by Chrysler and GM help or hurt CarMax? Fewer places to buy cars has to help, but will the move dry up its inventory of cars to resell? Check in on Friday, to see if CarMax has an opinion.

Until next week, I remain,
