It's the third week of second-quarter earnings reports and the volume of news will begin to slow. But there are lots of important precincts still to be heard from. Today brought a strong report from

AT&T

(T) - Get Report

, whose 57 cents per share

beat expectations and could serve as a boon for the

Dow Jones Industrial Average.

ExxonMobil

(XOM) - Get Report

also beat street estimates.

The

Nasdaq

also looks stronger today on the day of earnings from

Compaq

(CPQ)

, which is poised to report after tonight's close. Investors are watching to see if slowing PC sales will affect the boxmaking bellwether.

Meanwhile, the rest of the day could bring cheering news from some Old-Economy stalwarts. Oil producers

Texaco

(TX) - Get Report

,

Aflac

(AFL) - Get Report

(will earnings be affected by the purchase of large quantities of Duck Chow?),

Disney

(DIS) - Get Report

and

McDonald's

(MCD) - Get Report

are all on tap to report today.

Earnings/Revenue Reports and Previews

Internet brokerage firm

Ameritrade

(AMTD) - Get Report

posted third-quarter earnings of 3 cents a share, ahead of the 15-analyst estimate of a 1-cent loss but below the year-ago 5-cent profit. Analysts, however, cut their third-quarter estimate recently because of lower trading volume. The company's revenue was up 91% from a year earlier but down 12% from the previous quarter.

Retailer

Circuit City

(CC) - Get Report

announced that its board approved a restructuring plan that would involve lowering earnings with one-time costs and cutting 1,000 jobs. The company said that the three-year plan, which includes remodeling its superstores and discontinuing the sale of major appliances, will hurt second- and third-quarter results. Circuit City said it expects third-quarter earnings per share to total about 16 cents after a 17-cent impact related to restructuring. Analysts had expected the retailer to list earnings of 33 cents a share. Deutsche Banc Alex. Brown analyst John Glass lowered his rating on the stock to market perform from strong buy.

Chevron

(CHV)

reported second-quarter earnings of $1.75 a share, a penny better than the 23 analyst estimate and the year-ago 53 cents. Chevron attributed the increased earnings to higher crude oil and natural gas prices and increased production.

ExxonMobil

(XOM) - Get Report

posted second-quarter earnings of $1.18 a share, well above the 24-analyst estimate of $1.07 and the year-ago 53 cents. The company attributed the robust results to strong oil prices and better profit margins on gasoline and other fuels.

GTECH Holdings

(GTK)

announced a profit warning for its fiscal 2001 second quarter, ending next month. The company expects revenues in the range of $230 million to $240 million, compared to $255 million in the second quarter. Additionally, the company expects earnings per share in the range of 18 to 22 cents, compared to second-quarter earnings of 58 cents. Analysts had expected the company to earn 38 cents a share.

Internet Pictures

(IPIX)

posted second-quarter losses of 43 cents a share, ahead of the six-analyst estimate of a 45 cent loss and the year-ago 81 cent loss. For more on Internet Pictures, take a look at Cory Johnson's

interview with the company's CEO.

Retailing giant

Kmart

(KM)

said it will close 66 traditional stores and six Super Kmart stores. The company said it expects second-quarter earnings in the range of 4 cents to 7 cents a share before a charge and also said it sees 2000 earnings-per-share to be below the year-ago results. The company said the store closings will result in a $740 million pre tax charge and earnings below expectations for the rest of the year.

Louisiana-Pacific

(LPX) - Get Report

reported second-quarter earnings of 42 cents a share, missing the nine-analyst estimate by a nickel and down from year-ago earnings of 76 cents a share. The company said the lower-than-expected earnings were the result of eroding prices for its products.

McDonald's

(MCD) - Get Report

posted second-quarter earnings of 39 cents a share, in line with the 17-analyst estimate and up slightly from the year-ago 37 cents a share. McDonald's said it expects stronger sales momentum in the second half of 2000.

Northeast Utilities

(NU)

posted second-quarter earnings of 8 cents a share, better than the four-analyst estimate of 6 cents and the year-ago earnings of less than 1 cent.

NOVA Chemicals

(NCX)

reported second-quarter earnings of $1.15, which includes a gain of 20 cents a share. The six-analyst estimate was 84 cents, while year-ago earnings were 34 cents a share.

Pharmaceutical giant

Pfizer

(PFE) - Get Report

posted second-quarter earnings of 23 cents, besting the 20-analyst estimate by a penny and improving upon last-year's 19 cents earnings a share.

Deutsche Banc Alex. Brown

cut the company's rating to market perform from strong buy.

RF Micro

(RFMD)

said it sees record revenue and earnings for 2001. The company also said its board approved a 2-for-1 stock split.

The world's No. 1 manufacturer of computer chips for mobile phones,

Texas Instruments

(TXN) - Get Report

, announced second-quarter earnings of 31 cents a share, beating the 25-analyst estimate by a penny and topping the year-ago 23-cent profit.

Additionally, the Dallas-based company announced that it expects accelerating growth in its core semiconductor business in the third quarter and is raising its capital expenditures for the year to $2.8 billion from $2.5 billion to meet strong customer demand.

After Monday's Close

Virage

(VRGE)

reported a loss of 48 cents for its fiscal first quarter. This was the first quarter that the software manufacturer has reported since it went public on June 29.

XETA Technologies

(XETA)
