NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- After the Monday holiday, U.S. equities are moving higher on Tuesday with the Nasdaq leading the way. TheStreet's Jonathan Marino takes a look at today's big headlines.

Turning to earnings, shares of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) are lower despite beating on top- and bottom-line estimates. The company's slightly lower-than-expected full-year guidance is likely responsible for the decline.
