Video transcript

BRAD SMITH: Well, taking a look at the major averages here just about 35 minutes into trade. And we're holding onto gains-- actually, no, we're not now. We're back in negative territory where we've been roughly oscillating here on the day.

The NASDAQ composite, you're seeing that down the most right now by about 7/10%. S&P 500, you're seeing that down by about 2/10%. And they're the only gainer that I was mentioning here on the day. Up by about 2/10%, this is the Dow Jones Industrial average.

Let's also take a brief look at some of the trending tickers. These are the ones that you are lighting up on the Yahoo Finance page. Right now, Walmart, of course, Home Depot, we were breaking down some of those earnings. Holding onto gains for Walmart and Home Depot.

And since we're talking about retail, let's round that out a little bit more and take a look at the heat map here. As we mentioned, Walmart, HD holding onto gains. But then you dive in on Costco as well, that right now holding onto gains of about 1.4%.

Perhaps investors really trying to key into what was taking place with Sam's Club, gleaning that to Costco as best they can. TJX, we're really getting into this leg of retail earnings season. So we'll keep a close eye on these names and much more. Julie, I'll toss it on over to you.
