Home Depot earnings the most disappointing for investors since the financial crisis
Shares of Home Depot Inc. sank 4.9% in morning trading Tuesday, which puts them on track to suffer the biggest one-day post-earnings decline in over 10 years. Earlier, the home improvement retailer beat fiscal third-quarter profit expectations but missed on total and same-store sales, and lowered its full-year outlook. The last time the stock fell as much on the day after earnings was May 19, 2009, when the stock dropped 5.3% after fiscal first-quarter 2019 results. Since then, the most disappointing earnings report before Tuesday was Q2 2017 results on Aug. 15, 2017, when the stock fell 2.7%. The stock's $11.60 price decline on Tuesday was shaving about 79 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average's price, which was down 19%. Home Depot's stock, which closed at a record high on Monday, has rallied 32.3% year to date, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 20.1%.

AT&T stock falls after MoffettNathanson downgrades, saying dividend looks less compelling
Shares of AT&T Inc. are down 1.7% in premarket trading Tuesday after MoffettNathanson analyst Craig Moffett downgraded the stock to sell from neutral. "Despite a target price well below AT&T's recent trading range, we've remained Neutral since our upgrade from Sell last November, based largely on the view that global yield starvation would attract capital to AT&T irrespective of its fundamentals," he wrote. "But in the wake of a strong rally that has left AT&T's valuation stretched and its dividend yield less compelling (particularly when measured against the recent recovery in the 10-year Treasury yield), we believe the time has come when the market will start paying attention to fundamentals again." AT&T's dividend yield is 5.15%, while the S&P 500's in 1.9%. He questions whether the company will be able to achieve its 2020 and three-year targets given challenges in its entertainment business, secular problems in business wireline, and a difficult pay-TV landscape. This will put pressure on AT&T's wireless business to deliver strong results, in Moffett's view, but that industry is becoming more competitive. He kept his $30 target price. AT&T shares have risen 39% so far this year, as the S&P 500 has gained 25%.

Swedish prosecutor drops investigation into Julian Assange rape allegation: WSJ
Swedish prosecutors have dropped their investigation of a rape allegation against Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange after deciding the evidence wasn't strong enough, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday. Sweden's Deputy Director of Public Prosecution Eva-Marie Persson told a press conference in Stockholm that after re-interviewing five witnesses, and interviewing two new witnesses, the evidence was not deemed sufficient to file an indictment. The injured party's statement has changed over time, which is "natural" after almost a decade since the charges were brought, said Persson. Other witness statements do not corroborate, she said. Assange spent seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London seeking refuge from the charges brought by two women in Sweden in 2010. Assange was forcibly removed from the embassy in April after Ecuador revoked his diplomatic immunity and was sentenced to 50 weeks in prison for skipping bail.

Medtronic's stock surges after earnings rise above expectations, and outlook raised
Shares of Medtronic PLC surged 2.4% in premarket trading Tuesday, after the medical technology company reported fiscal second-quarter earnings that rose above expectations, and raised its full-year profit outlook, but the stock slipped 1.1% in premarket trading to extend a pullback from the previous session's all-time intraday high.
