10 Stocks Set to Benefit From Gay Marriage

Mens Wearhouse (MW) trades an average of 585,000 shares per day and has a market cap of $1.8 billion. The Mens Wearhouse, with its subsidiaries, operates as a specialty apparel retailer, renting tuxedos and other apparel. The company is performing well with annual revenue and net profits climbing. It reports earnings June 6, and Wall Street is expecting results within 54 cents and 58 cents per share. The mean earnings number of 55 cents places the price-to-earnings multiple at a relatively low 11.6. MW has beat estimates in the last four quarters.

Looking at the chart from a technical analyst's point of view, MW has rising 90-day and 200-day moving averages. The current price broke below the 90-day moving average, bouncing off support at $35. It appears the 90-day moving average resistance is about to be tested. A breakthrough above will signal a bullish trend continuation.

Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSO) shares trade an average of 146,000 per day, and the company has a market cap of $231 Million. While investments in MSO have been put in jail, with shares trading near 52-week lows, MSO's position in lifestyle ideas for home, weddings and celebrations makes it an ideal candidate to take advantage of increasing weddings.

Short interest is high, with more than 8% of the float short. Expectations are low, making MSO a long shot that investors may want to keep on the radar if wedding numbers increase.

Shutterfly (SFLY - Get Report) provides an Internet-based publishing service that enables consumers to share, print and preserve their digital photos. Shutterfly trades an average of 1.5 million shares per day and has a market cap of $845 million. A 24% short interest sums up the situation of how the smart money views Shutterfly. Shorts were rewarded from a 56% decline in price from a year ago.

Shutterfly has beaten estimates in the past four out of four quarters, although only one quarter was profitable. For the current quarter, the mean estimate is for another loss of 35 cents per share. Maybe what Shutterfly actually needs is gay marriage for what is missing in their life?
