The weight of the world -- at least World 8.4 -- will be on Nintendo's (OTC BB: NTDOY.PK) shoulders come Tuesday, when it hosts a 3DS event in Tokyo. It shocked gamers by cutting prices on the high-tech handheld gaming system by 32% this summer, just months after its March debut.
New games? New accessories? We'll see, though shares of Nintendo can use a break after hitting a five-year low this summer.

The Ascena name may not be familiar, but its retail chains -- dressbarn, maurices, and Justice -- are shopping-mall staples. CLARCOR is a filtration-products maker. The two companies don't have a lot in common, but both are expected to post higher earnings this time around.
