surged after the bell rang Wednesday when the San Francisco-based company, which provides customer relationship management software and services, posted a boost in second-quarter earnings. Excluding items, Salesforce.com would have earned 6 cents a share, exceeding estimates. The company also offered an optimistic forecast for the rest of the year.

gained after the Houston-based retailer beat second-quarter earnings expectations and said the current quarter should also top forecasts. Shares of Men's Wearhouse traded up $1.09, or 3.1%, to $35.81.

Citi Trends
