Investing.com -- U.S. stocks fell as retail earnings continued to pour out and investors considered fresh data on jobless claims and existing home sales.

At 10:36 ET (14:36 GMT), the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 93 points or 0.3%, while the S&P 500 was down 1%, and the NASDAQ Composite was down 0.2%.

Kohl's Corp. (NYSE:KSS) cut its revenue and earnings guidance for the year, and its shares fell 6%. Higher promotions and costs cut into sales. The company said its middle-income shoppers are feeling pressure from inflation and cutting back on buying clothes and other discretionary goods.

Cosmetics giant Estée Lauder Companies Inc. (NYSE:EL) gave guidance for its fiscal first quarter that was short of expectations, and it expects net sales to decrease compared to the same quarter last year. Its shares rose 1.5%.

Meme stock Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBY) tumbled 27% a day after Chairman and activist investor Ryan Cohen notified regulators he intended to sell the stake he owned in the company through his RC Ventures.

First-time jobless claims fell to 250,000 last week, and July’s existing home sales fell to 4.8 million annualized, and were down 5.9% from June.

Oil rose. Crude Oil WTI Futures was up more than 2% to $90.33 a barrel, while Brent Oil Futures was also up more than 2%, to $96.13 a barrel. Gold Futures was flat at $1,777.

We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind:  

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended.

These headlines that tie a momentary snapshot of the markets to news are ridiculous. They are obsolete in 30 minutes.
