    Target's price cuts on 'thousands' of items sinks retailer stocks

    Retailer stocks took a midday dive Friday, after Target Corp. said on its website that it had "lowered prices on thousands of items," fueling concerns over a price war amid a lackluster sales environment.

"Part of that is removing the guesswork to ensure they feel confident they're getting a great, low price every day." Shares of rival Wal-Mart Stores Inc. went from down 1.2% just before Target's announcement to down 2%. Elsewhere, shares of Kohl's Corp. shed 1%, J.C. Penney Co. Inc. gave up 1.7%, Macy's Inc. lost 1.4% and Nordstrom Inc. fell 0.5%. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF went from a loss of 0.4% to a decline of 1.3%, before recovering to be down 0.8%. Target's stock has tumbled 21.5% year to date, while the retail ETF has lost 9.0% and the S&P 500 has gained 10.1%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Birchbox in acquisition talks with a number of retailers, including Wal-Mart: Recode

    Birchbox, the subscription beauty service, has been in talks with a number of retailers about being acquired, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc. , according to Recode. Wal-Mart has recently purchased a number of online sites, including ModCloth and Bonobos. It paid more than $3 billion for Jet.com in 2016.
