Zynga Inc. is expected to report a loss of 3 cents per share in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 on revenue of $185.42 million.

At the peak of the second-quarter earnings season for a second week, eight companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) and 156 firms in the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) are scheduled to report earnings July 22-26.

Online social-gaming stock Zynga Inc. has had a tough ride since its December 2011 initial public offering. While Zynga’s shares have risen by more than 40 percent this year, the San Francisco-based company’s results  Thursday will probably show it is still struggling with unprofitability and stagnant top-line growth.

Other companies on deck to report in the latter part of the week include Amazon.com, Bristol-Myers Squibb, General Motors and Starbucks.
