U.S. stocks opened solidly higher on Wednesday as upbeat quarterly results from retailers Target and Lowe's helped to support early buying.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 229 points, or 0.9%, to 26,196, the S&P 500 index climbed 0.8% to 2,923, while the Nasdaq Composite Index picked up 8,018, a gain of 0.9%.

In corporate news, Target Corp.'s shares hit a record high following the discount retailer's report of fiscal second-quarter earnings and sales that beat expectations, while Lowe's Cos. stock also rallied after its second-quarter net income rose to $1.68 billion.

In the afternoon, the Fed will publish the minutes of the July meeting of its rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee at 2 p.m. Eastern. Elsewhere, Italy's bond yields headed lower after Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte resigned on Tuesday, triggering a power struggle, while German debt yields rose after a bond auction with negative interest rates.
