Men's Wearhouse (MW) and Jos. A. Bank (JOSB) rise after the former increased its takeover offer for the latter yet again. Men's Wearhouse increased the bid by 10% to approximately $1.78 billion. The company's offer now stands at $63.50 a share, up from $57.50 a share, for Jos. A. Bank. The deal expires on March 12 and is contingent upon Jos. A.
