The market stumbled to start the last trading day of February as retail stocks begin to report.

Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) beat on both earnings and revenue estimates, but warned of a slowdown ahead and announced full-year, earnings-per-share guidance that came in below estimates. The stock rose 1.2% Tuesday morning.

Cruise company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: NCLH) fell more than 5% in premarket trading after reporting a wider-than-expected loss for the fourth quarter. The company’s 2023 guidance also came in below expectations.

Investors await reports from retailers Lowe’s Co. Inc. (NYSE: LOW), Kohl’s Corp. (NYSE: KSS) and Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF) before the bell Wednesday.
