To wrap up this week's Consumer Countdown, the team takes a look ahead at next week and discusses which companies they're keeping an eye on.
Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Sean O'Reilly is watching several stocks, including Burger King Worldwide (UNKNOWN: BKW.DL ) ; he wants to know how the fast-food company is stacking up against the Chipotles of the world. He'll also be keeping an eye on Caesar's Entertainment (NASDAQ: CZR ) to see if it can fend off its fast-growing peers. In addition he's watching Good Year Tire & Rubber (NASDAQ: GT ) , as well as Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE: BUD ) , which has been plagued by the growing popularity of craft beers.
Meanwhile, Mike will be watching Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA ) to see how well the company's doing in its video-on-demand segment, which he thinks is a viable competitor to Netflix.
