The new trading week kicks off with Lennar (NYSE: LEN) reporting. Like most homebuilders, Lennar isn't profitable these days. However, analysts see the company posting a loss of just $0.46 a share this time, an improvement over the $0.56-a-share loss it delivered a year ago.

Diedrich Coffee (Nasdaq: DDRX) has been one of this year's hottest stocks, so it will have plenty to prove when it follows Lennar's report. Diedrich has turned its fortunes around as one of the companies cashing in on the success of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters' (Nasdaq: GMCR) Keurig single-cup brewers and the lucrative K-Cup refills.

If it's Tuesday, it must be H.B. Fuller (NYSE: FUL). The adhesives specialist will hope to stick to analyst profit expectations of $0.36 a share for its fiscal third quarter. If it succeeds, it would be the first time in nearly two years that the company earns more than it did a year earlier.

Cereal company General Mills (NYSE: GIS) lays out its bowl. Many supermarket staples have taken hits lately, as thrifty shoppers trade down to cheaper store brands. The pros don't see this at General Mills, expecting profits to inch up marginally for the quarter.

Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM) reports. Despite the proliferation of shiny new rival smartphones, the company's BlackBerry remains hot. Analysts see Research In Motion's quarterly profits climbing 16% to $1.00 a share during the quarter.

Four days after Lennar's report, fellow developer KB Home (NYSE: KBH) steps up to the plate. It too is projected to post a narrower deficit. Between Lennar and KB Home, investors should have a pretty good snapshot of the housing industry in terms of new home orders and cancellations.

There's no place like home, even if there have been far better places than homebuilder stocks.

Until next week, I remain,
