Men's Wearhouse will be scrutinized as its hold rated rival Joseph A Bank (JOSB) reports premarket on Thursday. Both clothiers are in a bidding war to buy each other with the latest bid by Mens Wearhouse. Both stocks are overvalued by 63% and traded to multi-year highs last week at $52.72 and $57.59 respectively. Mens Wearhouse set its all-time high at $56.64 in July 2007, while Joseph A Bank set its all-time high last Friday.
