• H&R Block surged 5 percent after posting revenue and earnings that beat analysts’ estimates. The country’s largest tax preparation company reported a smaller loss, helped by cost-cutting efforts. It typically turns in a loss in the August-to-October period because it takes in most of its revenue during the U.S. tax season. H&R Block gained 89 cents to $18.26.

• The Men’s Wearhouse dropped 84 cents to $30.51. The clothing company posted third-quarter results missed Wall Street’s estimates and cut its profit estimates for the fourth quarter and full year.
