5 Stocks To Watch After The Market Closes Today - Wednesday, Dec. 7

United Natural Foods (UNFI): UNFI continues to see increasing demand for its wholesale offerings of organic and natural food products. This group of products has the largest upside given consumers newfound eating habits. Productivity initiatives and improved operation efficiency helped UNFI reach this point where it can now make acquisitions to bolster its position in target markets. Unfortunately as more companies begin to offer healthy products, a price war will ensue that could undercut profits and revenue growth.

Tailored Brands (TLRD): Quarterly results have been mixed recently due to the difficult consumer and retail environment. These conditions are steadily improving as witnessed by the resurgence in the retail space earlier this earnings season. Tailored Brands could greatly benefit from a victory this quarter as shares are down 65% in the past 12 months. Its two flagship brands, Men’s Wearhouse and Jos A. Bank have delivered abysmal results despite frequent discounting. Last quarter Men’s Wearhouse delivered a comparable sales increase of 2.9% but  Jos A. Bank dropped by 16.3%. Given how poorly the company has performed its not surprising that the stock historically drops 2% immediately following an earnings report.
