NEW YORK — (AP) — Stocks are opening solidly in the green on Wall Street as investors applaud a strong set of quarterly results from Macy’s and other retailers. The better-than-expected reports helped allay investors’ worries about the sector, which took big losses last week after Target and Walmart reported dismal results. Macy’s and a few other big retailers including Dollar General soared after reporting that they were doing well despite sharply higher inflation. The S&P 500 climbed 1% in the early going Thursday, keeping the benchmark index on track for its first weekly gain after seven weeks of losses. European markets were higher.
