  • The company's same-store sale rose 2.3% in the second quarter, above expectations of a 1.8% increase

  • Excluding items, the company earned $2.15 per share, beating estimates of $2.01
Target Corp (TGT):
  • The company beat Wall Street estimates for quarterly profit and raised its annual forecast, as higher investments to cater to changing shopping habits lifted online sales and attracted more shoppers
  • Robust digital sales drove more than half of the 3.4% growth in same-store sales
  • Store traffic also grew 2.4% in the quarter (analysts on average were expecting same-store sales to grow 3%)
  • The company also raised its full-year adjusted profit forecast between $5.90 and $6.20 per share, compared with the prior range of $5.75 to $6.05
  • Excluding certain items, Target earned $1.82 per share, beating analysts' estimates by 20 cents
  • Total revenue of $18.42 billion beat estimates of $18.34 billion

Citigroup Inc (C):
  • Citigroup and BNP Paribas are caught up in the U.S. criminal case against the chief financial officer of China's Huawei Technologies, according to newly available documents
  • The banks were named in documents released on Tuesday after a hearing in British Columbia Supreme Court where Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou is fighting extradition to the United States on bank fraud charges
  • The two are among at least four financial institutions that had banking relationships with Huawei when Meng and others allegedly misled them about its business dealings in Iran despite U.S. sanctions
  • Two others, HSBC Holdings and Standard Chartered, have been previously reported
Iamgold Corp (IMG):
  • The miner has dismissed 325 contractors from its Rosebel gold mine in Suriname while it works to restore security after a clash between illegal miners and police, a company spokeswoman said on Tuesday
  • The company continues to process stockpiled material at its mill, but has lowered its full-year production guidance to between 765,000 to 810,000 ounces of gold, owing partly to reduced output at Rosebel
  • Any restart hinges on talks with the government to increase security at the site, company spokeswoman Indi Gopinathan said on Tuesday
  • "What we need is assurances that we don't have another incident like this occur," she said
Royal Bank of Canada (RY):
  • The company missed analysts' estimates for quarterly profit as equity trading weakened and it kept aside more funds to cover bad loans
  • Net income at the lender's capital markets business, which includes trading, investment banking and advisory, fell 6% to C$653 million
  • However, interest rate hikes in the United States and Canada last year benefited its personal and commercial banking business, where net income rose 10% to C$1.66 billion

  • On an adjusted basis, the largest Canadian lender by market cap earned C$2.26 per share
Walmart Inc (WMT) & Tesla Inc (TSLA):
  • Walmart sued Tesla, accusing it of "widespread negligence" that led to repeated fires of its solar systems and asking a court to force Tesla to remove solar panels from more than 240 of its U.S. stores
  • The lawsuit accuses Tesla of having untrained workers putting up shoddy installations and showing "utter incompetence or callousness, or both," court papers said
  • The lawsuit is the latest blow to Tesla's struggling solar business, which it acquired through its $2.6 billion purchase of SolarCity in 2016
  • The fires destroyed significant amounts of store merchandise and required substantial repairs, totaling millions of dollars in losses, Walmart said in the lawsuit
  • In addition, inspections of the retailer's other Tesla-owned solar installations "displayed troubling problems that were indicative of widespread negligence," the lawsuit said
