The market will continue to focus on earnings Monday, and traders will be hoping for cheery news to help them forget about the selloff that ended this week.

On the early side will be Halliburton ( HAL), Hasbro ( HAS), Kimberly-Clark ( KMB), Merck ( MRK) and Schering-Plough ( SGP).

Reports will continue rolling in after the close. American Express ( AXP), Apple ( AAPL) and Texas Instruments ( TXN) will be the big names on the calendar.

No economic data are expected, but Federal Reserve Governor Randall Kroszner will be speaking on recent events in the financial markets at a conference in Washington. Also over the weekend, Fed Governor Frederic Mishkin is scheduled to address a gathering in Montreal.

Meanwhile, on, check in early for staff reporter Daniel Del'Re's preview of Apple's earnings. So far, investors can't get enough of Apple, whose iMacs, iPods and now the iPhone have helped propel the stock this year to all-time highs.

The question is, can it continue? We'll explore what Apple has to do next to keep the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately crowd interested.

Elsewhere, with so much uncertainty in the stock market, it's easy to get wrapped up in who's collapsing and to overlook who's outperforming. Senior writer Scott Moritz takes a look at Juniper Networks ( JNPR), a company that's quietly been on a roll of late.

Also, staff reporter Nicholas Yulico will explore new slot machines that are being rolled out by IGT ( IGT) and WMS Industries ( WMS). Though gaming has been all about Macau lately, these new offerings could be key, because they might provide a significant revenue boost to casino owners.
