Sometimes Wall Street is about trends, and the announcement of several major earnings reports last week seemed to surface a noticeable one: Old Economy blue-chip stocks proved their staying power while New Economy plays raised renewed concern.

Old reliable companies, such as

Merck

(MRK) - Get Report

,

American Express

(AXP) - Get Report

and

Exxon-Mobil

(XOM) - Get Report

all reported strong earnings.

Meanwhile, stocks such as

iVillage

(IVIL)

scared some investors last Friday. The New York-based women's online Web site took a 10% hit after announcing a wider-than-expected loss.

Today,

Storage Technology

(STK) - Get Report

made investors smile when it announced it surpassed expectations by

4 cents.

It's the tail end of earnings season, but the first week of August brings a trickle of firms to the earnings spotlight.

CVS

(CVS) - Get Report

and

Procter & Gamble

(PG) - Get Report

report Tuesday, while

Aetna

(AET)

will follow on Friday.
