U.S. market indexes were in the red Tuesday morning, with investors awaiting inflation data.

Shares of Vipshop Holdings Litd. (NYSE:VIPS) rose almost 10% on the back of the company posting its financial results for the fourth quarter. The online retail company reported annual net sales growth of 23.3% to $3.70 billion, while its profit advanced to 22 cents per share. Moreover, the results exceeded analysts’ earnings estimates by two cents and revenue expectations by $20 million. In addition, the gross profit increased 17.3% to $805.4 million.

During the quarter, Tencent (HKSE:00700) and JD.com (NASDAQ:JD) also invested $863 million in Vipshop, which served as a catalyst for its market share growth.

Chairman and CEO Eric Shen said he was pleased with the company's performance as well as the new investments.
