Walmart (WMT) posted healthy profit and revenue beats Tuesday morning, while standing by its forecast for the second half. Earlier disclosures set the stage for the results. Last month, Walmart warned its profits would be squeezed as customers, dogged by sky-high inflation, sought out bargains on lower-margin items such as groceries as they shunned more profitable discretionary items like electronics. The retailer, like others in the space, has had to work through a glut of excess inventory, too, as shoppers changed their behaviors.

Home Depot (HD) beat expectations on the top and bottom lines. The company also stuck with its outlook for the year, even as Americans contend with high inflation. Home Depot sales reflect the strength of higher-end consumers who hire professional contractors. “Our performance reflects continued strength in demand for home improvement projects,” Home Depot CEO Ted Decker said in a statement accompanying the earnings release. Not everything was rosy, though: The company said total customer transactions slipped to 467.4 million from 481.7 million in the prior-year quarter.

Homebuilder sentiment fell into negative territory this month, according to National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index. Mortgage rates have declined from recent highs, but are still nearly double what they were at the beginning of the year. Home prices are still rising, too, and supply remains tight.

U.S. futures are lower, European stocks are mostly higher and Asian markets ended mostly lower.

The national average price of gasoline is down seven-tenths of a cent at $3.949 per gallon.
