By Liz Moyer
Investing.com -- Stocks were mixed on Tuesday, looking to close out the month on a down note after the rally at the start of the year. Here are the midday movers for Feb. 28.
- Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT ) shares rose 2.9% after the retailer beat expectations for the holiday quarter, as bargain hunters headed to stores. Its guidance for the full year, however, was short of expectations.
- Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NYSE: NCLH ) shares fell 11.7% after the cruise operator reported a bigger-than-expected loss in the fourth quarter. Its guidance for the first quarter and this year also was short of expectations.
AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc (NYSE: AMC ) shares fell 3.9% ahead of the movie theater chain's earnings this evening. AMC announced a plan with Walmart (NYSE: WMT ) to sell movie-theater popcorn in the stores.
- Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE: GS ) shares were down 2.6% after the investment banking giant said at its investor day that it was considering shrinking its consumer business after billions of dollars of losses in the past three years.
Universal Health Services Inc (NYSE: UHS ) shares fell 9% after the healthcare management company issued full-year earnings per share guidance of $9.50 to $10.50, which falls below the consensus estimate.
