Today promised to be a fairly busy day on the corporate front and moving the needle before the bell in New York are several stocks.

Elsewhere Home Depot Inc (NYSE:HD) on Tuesday reported fourth-quarter earnings and sales that topped Wall Street's expectations, as more shoppers flocked to its stores and bought more.

Walmart Inc shares (NYSE:WMT) shares shed 4.09% to US$100.49 after its quarterly earnings fell short of analysts' expectations.
