    Dress Barn (DBRN), Home Depot (HD) and other retailers urge the Fed to drop a proposal that would require credit card issuers to consider only a borrower's "independent" income rather than household income. They say the new standard could make it difficult for some customers, especially stay-at-home moms, to get credit quickly.

    Retailers like Best Buy (BBY +2.8 %) and Amazon (AMZN -0.1%) are making mobile phones 'mission critical' sales tools. With special discounts and other incentives, retailers will drive purchases via mobile phones to $3B by year's end, and to $6B in 2011, say analysts.

    Penetration of Home Depot's (HD +1.2%) private-label credit-card has fallen 300 bps to 23%. "Consumers have definitely deleveraged," CFO Carol Tome concedes on this morning's earnings call. Utilization stands at a meek 25%, another testimony to the "savings mentality that we see with consumers in our country," she says. "They're just delevering."

    U.S. wood-floor manufacturers - which sell planks through Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW), and which are already hurting from the house-construction slump - convince the Commerce Department to investigate whether China is dumping hundreds of millions of dollars in flooring on the American market.

    China's growing car economy isn't just good news for automakers. It means more drive-throughs for companies like McDonald's (MCD), more consumers staying in hotels like InterContinental's (IHG), more purchases at suburban stores like Home Depot (HD)...

    Market recap: Stocks staged a broad rally - although well off midday highs - on signs of life in the deals market (I, II), solid results from Wal-Mart (WMT) and Home Depot (HD), and a flurry of reports that showed hints of economic strength. Bonds took a beating, while gold moved to a two-month high and oil snapped five days of declines. NYSE advancers led decliners nearly three to one.

    If you're thinking about investing in housing stocks, you've got to distinguish between a valuation trade and a fundamental one, veteran housing analyst Ivy Zelman tells Barron's. KB Home (KBH) and Lennar (LEN) are Buys as valuation trades, while home-improvement companies like Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) are Buys on the fundamentals. Stay away from USG (USG) and Armstrong World Industries (AWI), Zelman says.

    Americans are more willing to support new commercial projects in their community in light of the recession, according to a study published today. Opposition to big retail projects continued to drop, with support increasing for local Wal-Marts (WMT), department stores (Target (TGT) and K-mart (SHLD)), and home improvement centers (Home Depot (HD) and Lowe`s (LOW)).
