(For faster updates on individual market-movers, Eikon users please use search string "STXBZ US") Wall Street open lower on Tuesday, weighed down by a 6 percent slump in Chinese shares and Wal-Mart's weaker-than-expected quarterly results.

** WAL-MART STORES INC, $69.83, -2.89 pct

The world's No.1 retailer reported weaker-than-expected quarterly earnings and lowered its full-year forecast on Tuesday, citing investments in staffing and weaker margins in its U.S. pharmacy business.

** HOME DEPOT INC, $123.03, +2.78 pct

The world's No.1 home improvement retailer reported a better-than-expected rise in quarterly same-store sales, helped by increased home remodeling activity in the United States and a recovery in the housing market.
