Stock futures rise slightly after S&P 500 slips from a record
Stock futures edged higher in overnight trading on Wednesday after the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped from their record highs.
Dow futures rose 50 points. S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures both traded 0.1% higher.
Investors awaited the first estimate for third-quarter annualized gross domestic product growth from the Commerce Department. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected an increased of just 2.8% as products remained stranded at normally bustling ports, employers struggled to find workers and consumers battled with inflation.
On Wednesday, the S&P 500 slipped 0.5% for its first down day in three as the rally on a strong earnings season started to ease. The blue-chip Dow dipped more than 250 points, falling for the first time in four days.
Major averages has been marching higher on earnings momentum this month. The S&P 500 has gained 5.6% in October, on pace to post its best month since November 2020. The Dow is up 4.9% this month, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite has rallied 5.5%.
Nearly 40% S&P 500 companies have reported earnings and more than 80% of them beat Wall Street expectations, according to CNBC calculations. S&P 500 companies are expected to grow profit by about 37.6% in the third quarter.
“Earnings have helped and a reminder that US reporting so far has been better than the long-term average in terms of beats,” Jim Reid, head of thematic research at Deutsche Bank, said in a note. “It has still been healthier relative to some of the stagflationary gloom stories seen through September and early October which has perhaps helped the relief rally.”
