PVH Corp. (PVH)

PVH is dressing in red today, down 5.36% at $106.75. The apparel retailer saw its shares crash after the company released news regarding an acquisition and announced its 2013 outlook. PVH announced that its recent acquisition of The Warnaco Group (Calvin Klein clothing) will require more investment than the company initially anticipated. PVH purchased Warnaco Group in a deal worth $2.9 billion that closed last month, but that $2.9 billion is going to end up being significantly more.
