By Dhirendra Tripathi -- Strong results from large retailers and data on sales in October lifted stocks on Tuesday, kicking off a big week of earnings for the sector.

Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT) forecast a strong holiday season and the largest brick-and-mortar retailer raised its annual sales and profit forecasts. Home Depot Inc (NYSE:HD) beat quarterly same-store sales estimates.

Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) is due to report Wednesday and Macys and other retailers later in the week.

Data showed retail sales rose in October as Americans appeared to have started holiday shopping early to avoid empty shelves amid supply chain concerns, giving the economy a lift at the start of the fourth quarter, Reuters reported.

Other data showed that manufacturing output in the U.S. rose to a two and a half year high in October, lifting shares of Industrial companies.

The bullish news on the retail sector -- consumer spending drives two-thirds of the U.S. economy -- blunted comments by St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard, who called for a more hawkish approach to rising inflation.

President Joe Biden took to the road on Tuesday to try and repair his sinking approval numbers after signing the $1 trillion infrastructure package into law at a White House ceremony on Monday. The new law will unleash hundreds of billions of dollars to improve roads, bridges, ports and other infrastructure.
