Meanwhile, Dollar Tree's shares slid nearly 15% on Nov. 26 after it posted weaker-than-expected earnings for the third quarter. The discount chain lowered its forecast for fiscal 2019 as it anticipates a negative impact from tariffs in 2020.

Under Armour Inc. recorded a loss of 8.5% in November. Its shares dropped 19% on Nov. 4 after the athletic apparel company reported third-quarter loss that was wider than analysts' expectations. Under Armour is also facing a federal investigation into its accounting practices, specifically whether it overstated its quarterly sales figures, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.

Kohl's Corp., whose stock fell 8.3% during the month, announced Nov. 19 that its adjusted diluted EPS for the third quarter dropped 24% year over year, missing analysts' estimates. It also cut its earnings outlook for the full year.
