Nov 17 (Reuters) - Wall Street looked set to open higher on Tuesday as better-than-expected earnings from Wal-Mart and Home Depot allayed some concerns after last week's sharp selloff in retail stocks.

Shares of Wal-Mart rose 1.8 percent to $58.90, while Home Depot was up 2.8 percent at $124.18 in premarket trading.

TJX was up 2.4 percent at $67.25 after reporting strong results.   Continuación...
