The new trading week kicks off with Coeur d'Alene Mines (NYSE: CDE), MannKind (Nasdaq: MNKD), and Zhongpin (Nasdaq: HOGS) reporting.

Other than releasing earnings reports on the same day, the three companies have little in common. Coeur d'Alene is a silver miner. Diabetes sufferers are keeping a close eye on MannKind as it tries to get its needle-free Afrezza insulin drug on the market. And true to its ticker symbol, Zhongpin is a Chinese producer of pork products.

(NYSE: MCP) checks in on Tuesday. The company went public last summer, and it turned out to have perfect timing. The California-based producer of rare-earth oxides hit the market just as China was coping with greater demand for the elements than it had in supply.

(NYSE: ZIP) went public just last month, but it's already time for the fast-growing auto-sharing service to justify its opening-day pop. Zipcar isn't currently profitable, and investors aren't expecting things to change in the near term. The keys for investors will be driver-engagement metrics and the company's performance in a climate of pesky gasoline prices.

(NYSE: KEM) steps up come Thursday. Wall Street sees the maker of capacitors more than doubling its quarterly profit. That would be a welcome result, given KEMET's poorly received guidance last time out.

The trading week closes out with Agilent Technologies (NYSE: A) sharing its fiscal second-quarter financials. Analysts are banking on a profit of $0.65 a share, comfortably ahead of the $0.43 it delivered a year earlier.

Until next week, I remain,

Rick Munarriz
