Here's why these two Motley Fool analysts will be keeping a close eye on Costco and Craft Brew Alliance this week.

In this segment from Wednesday's Investor Beat, Motley Fool analysts Bill Barker and Jason Moser each look at one stock they'll be watching closely this week. Bill looks at Costco ( COST 0.65% ) and discusses why it will make a good barometer when it reports earnings tomorrow for how this year's exceptionally severe winter weather affected retailers as a whole, while Jason will be watching Craft Brew Alliance ( BREW ), a small brewer with a lot of big connections.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
