Lululemon Drops: 6 Stocks in 60 Seconds

Fast-food king McDonald’s (MCD[1]) rose around 2% Monday after the company announced that global same-store sales rose a better-than-expected 2.6% last month — partly in thanks to its new egg-white McMuffin[2]. The stock relinquished most of those gains yesterday, however.

Apple‘s (AAPL[3]) Worldwide Developer Conference kicked off Monday, and the company debuted its iOS 7 operating system, among other products. Still, Wall Street seems skeptical about the company’s future, as the one-time tech darling has lost more than 17% this year so far.

More on the conference:

Lululemon (LULU[7]) stock plummeted 17% yesterday despite a solid quarterly earnings release. The reason? CEO Christine Day announced plans to step down[8] pending the naming of a replacement. Day said the decision was made for personal reasons.

Google (GOOG[9]) announced Monday that it had purchased Waze — a hot navigation app — for $1.1 billion[10]. The deal was just one example of a recent rush in M&A activity[11].

Next up, we have a surprising high-flier: drugstore chain Rite Aid (RAD[12]). The stock is up around 5% so far this week, continuing a run that has seen RAD shares more than double in 2013 alone. Here’s a strategy current RAD shareholders might want to employ[13] before the company reports earnings next Thursday.

Last but not least, Walmart (WMT[14]) — whose stock price remains near an all-time high[15] — held its annual shareholder meeting late last week and has been working to rid its brand of negative shopper stereotypes. So far this year, the big-box retailer is lagging the market with 10% YTD gains.
