The government is also probing Herbalife (HLF), as the FTC disclosed that it was launching an investigation of the multi-level marketer...

As a result, the delivery of some of the aircraft will be delayed.... Menswear retailers Men's Wearhouse (MW) and Jos. A.

In earnings news, VoIP phone service provider magicJack (CALL) rose after reporting stronger than expected results and providing higher than expected revenue guidance, and doughnut retailer Krispy Kreme (KKD) climbed after reporting slightly weaker than expected results but raising its full-year EPS guidance and increasing its share repurchase allocation. On the other hand, fuel cell maker Plug Power (PLUG) finished the week lower after the company reported an in-line EPS loss, but research firms Roth Capital and Cowen downgraded the stock. Another company in the sector, FuelCell (FCEL), also ended the week lower after reporting in-line results. Both stocks had jumped by large amounts in previous weeks.
