Among the companies with shares expected to actively trade in Tuesday's session are Home Depot Inc. (HD), Carnival Corp. (CCL) and HHGregg Inc. (HGG).
Home Depot's fiscal first-quarter earnings jumped 18% as the home-improvement-products retailer reported stronger sales amid what Chief Executive Frank Blake called a recovering housing market. The company also raised its view for the year. Shares rose 3.5% to $79.45 premarket.
Carnival slashed its full-year guidance, noting cruise ticket pricing has led to lower-than-expected revenue yields and voyage cancellations and increased costs are expected to hurt bottom-line results. The cruise-line operator's shares slipped 6.9% to $32.90 premarket. American depositary shares of Carnival's U.K.-based unit, Carnival PLC (CUK, CCL.LN), fell 8% to $33.92.
HHGregg's fiscal fourth-quarter profit fell 82% as the home-appliances and electronics retailer logged a decline in same-store sales and weaker margins, and the year-earlier period was boosted by insurance-related proceeds. Shares fell 10% to $14.02 in premarket trading as the company issued fiscal 2014 guidance that missed analysts' expectations.
Saks Inc.'s (SKS) fiscal first-quarter profit sank 38% as the luxury retailer's results were harmed by store-closing costs and debt-extinguishment losses, though same-store sales showed strong improvement, helping push overall sales about market expectations. Shares rose 2.2% to $12.55 premarket.
Fiscal first-quarter profit at Urban Outfitters Inc. (URBN) rose 39% as the clothing retailer posted record revenue, while margins widened thanks to fewer markdowns. However, shares fell 3.1% to $43.11 premarket as sales fell short of analyst expectations.

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals Inc. (ACRX) said results from a late-stage study of its investigational treatment for the management of post-operative pain were positive. Shares jumped 12% to $7.22 premarket.
