Monday
With the Olympic Games kicking off in Beijing over the weekend, it's only fitting that AirMedia Group (Nasdaq: AMCN) lands on Monday with its quarterly report. The company runs an advertising network in several Chinese airports, which are probably pretty busy places this month. Analysts see quarterly profits climbing 43% to $0.10 a share, but investors will want to know how things are shaping up now that the Games are in town. Another related company checking in on Monday will be Home Inns & Hotels (Nasdaq: HMIN), a rapidly growing hospitality chain in China.

Tuesday
Online gambling specialist GigaMedia (Nasdaq: GIGM) calls on Tuesday. Wall Street believes that the company will earn $0.17 a share in its latest quarter, flat with last year's showing. Then again, GigaMedia has the poker face down pat. It has beaten analyst profit targets in four consecutive quarters.

Wednesday
The sun may shine kindly on Canadian Solar (Nasdaq: CSIQ). Despite the name, this is another Chinese solar energy play. Like many of its sun-worshipper peers, Canadian Solar is on fire. Mr. Market sees a $0.45-per-share profit for the quarter, well ahead of the loss that the company posted a year earlier.

Thursday
Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) comes in for a price check on Thursday. The world's leading retailer posted lackluster store-level sales last week, so expect the company to be asked about that showing, even if the reported numbers -- which won't include last month's sales -- do clean up nicely.

Friday
Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE: ANF) closes out the trading week with its second-quarter report. Retail analysts think earnings will climb 6% for the period. Let's hope the financials aren't half-dressed, like many of its catalog models.

Until next week, I remain,
