But it's not all good news. Sentiment was dampened by comments from President Donald Trump that he called off last weekend's trade talks with China.

Target posted much stronger-than-expected second-quarter earnings. Digital sales rose nearly 200% from last year as shoppers flocked to the few stores that remained opened throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Target said comparable-store sales growth of 24.3% in the second quarter was the strongest it has ever reported.

And Lowe's posted second-quarter earnings and sales that beat analysts' expectations as consumers focused on DIY projects during the coronavirus pandemic.

Same-store sales at the home-improvement retailer jumped 34.2%, well above forecasts of 16.3%, and U.S. same-store sales soared 35.1%.
