NEW YORK -- Walt Disney(DIS) reports fiscal third-quarter results after Tuesday's closing bell and analysts are calling for earnings of 93 cents a share on revenue of $11.30 billion.
Shares of Disney, a Dow component, have risen more than 30% since the start of the year.
Sirius XM Radio(SIRI) is expected by analysts Tuesday to post second-quarter earnings of 2 cents a share on revenue of $834.4 million. Revenue in the first quarter was $804.7 million.
Sirius has topped expectations in four of the past five quarters, and the stock has risen more than 15% in 2012.
Priceline.com(PCLN) is seen earning $7.36 a share in the June-ended quarter on revenue of $1.35 billion.

Johnson & Johnson(JNJ) and Pfizer(PFE) announced the discontinuation of the development of bapineuzumab intravenous, a proposed treatment for mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease, after a disappointing phase III trial.
The two companies were partners on the drug's development as was Elan(ELN) , which has a 49.9% interest in Janssen AI, the J&J unit that was working with Pfizer on the drug.
Elan said it expects to record a non-cash impairment charge of $117.3 million in the third quarter to write down the entire value of its Janssen AI investment.
