NEW YORK (AP) -- Retailers are reporting solid revenue gains for February, extending the strong spending momentum seen during the holiday season.

As major retailers report their monthly results Thursday, Limited Brands Inc. and Macy's Inc. reported gains that beat Wall Street expectations. Target Corp. announced an increase slightly below analysts' projections.
