The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) was off more than 140 points at its session low, as a lackluster round of corporate earnings overshadows rising oil prices. Specifically, while June-dated crude futures have climbed 1.7% to trade at $48.15 per barrel, a sharp post-earnings loss for Snap stock is weighing on investor sentiment. Additionally, a negative earnings reaction for Macy's has put pressure on retail stocks, with Nike among the leading laggards on the Dow. The S&P 500 Index (SPX) and Nasdaq Composite (COMP) are retreating from yesterday's record closing highs, too, with the latter on track to break its five-day winning streak.

Among the names with accelerated options activity is Nordstrom, with 30,000 contracts on the tape -- 13 times the expected intraday pace, with volume on track to settle in the 99th annual percentile. JWN shares are trading down with their fellow retail stocks, last seen 6.9% lower at $46.51 ahead of tonight's earnings report. Most active is the May 50 call, where it looks like one trader may be initiating a call ratio spread with the May 47.50 calls.

Dillard's is one of the leading laggards on the NYSE today, after the department store chain reported lower-than-expected earnings. DDS stock has surrendered 13.2% to trade at $50.26, but found a foothold earlier atop the round $50 mark.

Kohl's stock has erased earlier gains to trade down 6.4% at $37.73 -- one of the biggest decliners on the SPX -- after its quarterly sales came up short. KSS shares have now widened their year-to-date deficit to more than 23%.
