We start off the new trading week with a big, fat engagement ring. Blue Nile (NASDAQ:NILE) is making the proposal with its first-quarter report. This may not seem like a big period for high-end jewelry purchases, but analysts still expect earnings at the online retailer to grow to $0.15 a share. The Rule Breakers and Hidden Gems recommendation earned $0.13 per share a year earlier.

Then it's time for Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:ERTS) -- a Stock Advisor selection -- to play. The leading video game publisher isn't expected to earn much for the quarter, but that's okay. The three next-generation video game consoles need another year or two to pad their user bases to really milk a software company's earnings power.

Beaming in on Wednesday: DirecTV (NYSE:DTV). The country's largest satellite-television provider is expected to post earnings of $0.30 a share for its first quarter, nearly twice the $0.17 per share it earned a year ago.  

Another interesting report on Wednesday will come from 24/7 Real Media (NASDAQ:TFSM). Let's see whether the interactive marketing specialist has anything to say about the buyout speculation swirling around it.

When I think of the booming economy in China, I usually surmise that an expanding workforce must be a blessing to the employment classifieds business. That just happens to be the specialty of 51job (NASDAQ:JOBS). The Chinese company reports on Thursday.

There seems to be a groundswell of pessimism for terrestrial radio companies. Between satellite radio taking away premium customers, and portable media devices hooking eardrums elsewhere, it may not seem like a growth industry. However, things aren't falling off as quickly as some bears once feared. Radio station operator Emmis (NASDAQ:EMMS) steps up on Friday to shed a little "on the air" insight into the terrestrial radio industry.

Until next week, I remain,
