CVS Caremark Corporation Research Report

On September 12, 2013, CVS Caremark Corporation (CVS Caremark) announced that
researchers at the Company and at Brigham and Women's Hospital have discovered
that a new approach to classify patients by their long-term medication
adherence behavior may be more accurate than traditional approaches. According
to the Company, the researchers followed more than 264,000 statin-users over a
15-month period and created measures to account for different adherence
behaviors in a study published in the September 2013 issue of Medical Care.
CVS Caremark mentioned that the study utilized a new method of categorizing
adherence called group-based trajectory modeling, which is based upon observed
patterns of medication-filling over time. Associate Physician of the Division
of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics of Brigham and Women's Hospital
and Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School, Niteesh Choudhry, MD, PhD,
said "Our findings could help facilitate research on medication adherence and
medication effectiveness in a variety of ways. For example, by using
group-based trajectory modeling, we could help identify patients with distinct
patterns of adherence so that health care professionals could appropriately
target interventions. In addition, data related to the quantity and timing of
medication availability could help improve our understanding of the effects of
nonadherence on clinical outcomes." The Full Research Report on CVS Caremark

The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. Research Report

On September 11, 2013, The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. (Men's Wearhouse) reported
its financial results for Q2 FY 2013 (period ended August 3, 2013). The
Company's net sales decreased 2.3% YoY to $647.3 million. Net earnings
(attributable to common shareholders) came in at $42.9 million or $0.85 per
diluted share, compared to net earnings of $59.4 million or $1.15 per diluted
share in Q2 FY 2012. Commenting on the results, President and CEO, Doug Ewert
commented, "Retail clothing sales during the second quarter were below our
internal plan as we experienced a decline in customer traffic compared to last
year's second quarter. We believe this is primarily due to macro issues
affecting the apparel retailing space. Despite the difficult economic climate,
we remain committed to our operating and capital allocation plans that were
laid out earlier this year. Over the past six months we have improved
financial flexibility, purchased the American designer brand Joseph Abboud and
its U.S. manufacturing operations, and repurchased approximately $152 million
of our shares; and we continue to evaluate strategic alternatives for our K&G
operations." The Full Research Report on The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. - including
