Stocks to Watch: GM, Disney, Warnaco, MasterCard

NEW YORK -- General Motors (GM - Get Report) is expected by analysts Wednesday to post third-quarter earnings of 60 cents a share on revenue of $35.92 billion.

On Tuesday, Ford (F) reported earnings that beat analysts' estimates, a result of strong U.S. sales that overcame the adverse impact of slumping Europe sales and lower profits in South America.
