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

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.
