NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Today I am profiling earnings for eight stocks that I believe are the most important to track this week. Two are gold mining companies which have lagged the price of gold. Two are the major oils-energy stocks in the Dow Industrial Average. One is a benchmark for consumers' use of credit cards. Another is a big-cap pharmaceutical company in the Dow. I also included a major generic drug company and a chain of coffee shops.
Market technicals deteriorated last week with both the Dow Industrial Average and S&P 500 ending the week with negative weekly chart profiles. The Nasdaq and Russell 2000 were already negative. Dow transports ended last week with a neutral weekly chart.
