Indications: U.S. stock futures off lows following GDP report

Stock Assault 2.0 - Artificial Intelligence Stock Market Software

By Barbara Kollmeyer and Kate Gibson, MarketWatch

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) â€" U.S. stock futures moved off the worst levels of the session Friday after the government reported the economy grew at a slightly more rapid pace during the summer.

The data on U.S. economic expansion comes ahead of next week’s midterm elections and the Federal Reserve’s monetary-policy meeting, which is expected to result in further economic stimulus.

U.S. stock-index futures came off their lows after the report showing the economy expanded at a 2% annual rate in the third quarter, improving from the tepid 1.7% growth seen in the prior three-month period. See story on GDP data.

“The economy is still growing but below its potential,” wrote Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak.

Erasing a roughly 50-point fall, futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average /quotes/comstock/21b!f:dj\z10 (DJZ10 11,029, -20.00, -0.18%)  added 1 point to 11,050, while those for the S&P 500 index /quotes/comstock/21m!f:sp\z10 (SPZ10 1,177, -2.30, -0.20%)  were down less than 1 point at 1,179..

Nasdaq 100 futures /quotes/comstock/21m!f:nd\z10 (NDZ10 2,125, -1.25, -0.06%)  were up 1.75 point at 2,127.5.

Stocks finished mixed on Thursday, with shares of 3M Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!mmm/quotes/nls/mmm (MMM 84.34, -0.73, -0.86%)  falling nearly 6% after the conglomerate lowered its sales forecasts for the year, partly due to softer demand.

But markets remained mostly preoccupied with the potential for quantitative easing at next week’s Fed meeting.

At 9:45 a.m. Eastern, Chicago PMI for October is due for release, and at 10 a.m. consumer sentiment for October is scheduled.

“We’re in a slightly surreal world where fixed income, gold and equities have done well, but all three horses can’t keep going in the same direction,” said Justin Urquhart Stewart, director of Seven Investment Management.

“Equities have had a nice run indeed, but are quite possibly in for a period of turmoil and turbulence while we look forward to seeing where the growth is coming from,” he said, adding that any quantitative easing won’t help the housing market, one difficult issue for the U.S. economy.

As for U.S. earnings, he said, while they’ve been upbeat, they are basically backwards-looking, and the view for share gains of companies is dim for a few reasons. “Companies are not investing much in the way of capital expenditure, hoarding cash and paring down debt. If the opportunity comes to take out the competitor, they’ll do it, but with cash,” he said.

As for earnings Friday, pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!mrk/quotes/nls/mrk (MRK 36.13, -0.81, -2.19%)  reported a 90% fall in third-quarter earnings, owing to charges. On an adjusted basis, the company earned 85 cents, beating consensus.

Chevron Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!cvx/quotes/nls/cvx (CVX 82.99, -1.45, -1.72%)   reported income fell almost 2% in the third-quarter, with shares of the country’s second-biggest oil company falling 1.4% in premarket trade.

Newell Rubbermaid Inc. /quotes/comstock/13*!nwl/quotes/nls/nwl (NWL 17.43, -0.37, -2.08%)  reported a 67% fall in third-quarter net income. Adjusted earnings were 42 cents compared to 38 cents a year ago, narrowly beating forecasts.

Shares of Microsoft Corp. /quotes/comstock/15*!msft/quotes/nls/msft (MSFT 26.73, +0.45, +1.71%)  rose 3.4% in premarket trading, after the company posted a 52% gain in first-quarter profit late Thursday, topping Wall Street expectations.

Wall Street finished on a mostly weaker note Wednesday, as the market began to fret over the scope and potential for another round of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve, which will hold a key meeting next week.

Thursday’s economic calendar includes weekly U.S. jobless claims, which fell 21,000 to 434,000 in the latest week, marking the third straight decline and the lowest level since early July, the U.S. Labor Department reported. Economists polled by MarketWatch had expected initial claims to rise to a seasonally adjusted 450,000.

Exxon Mobil /quotes/comstock/13*!xom/quotes/nls/xom (XOM 66.22, +0.55, +0.84%)  reported a 55% rise in quarterly profit, with the world’s biggest publicly traded oil company beating analysts’ expectations.

Shares of Eastman Kodak Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!ek/quotes/nls/ek (EK 4.58, +0.61, +15.37%)   added nearly 7% after the photography and printing company’s quarterly earnings report topped Wall Street estimates.

Motorola Inc. /quotes/comstock/13*!mot/quotes/nls/mot (MOT 8.13, +0.04, +0.49%) reported its first year-over-year sales gain since 2006 on revenue from its smart phones.

Chemical manufacturer Dow Chemical Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!dow/quotes/nls/dow (DOW 30.86, -0.35, -1.12%) reported a better-than-anticipated quarterly profit, and so did Colgate-Palmolive Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!cl/quotes/nls/cl (CL 74.92, -0.58, -0.77%) , but Colgate’s shares edged lower in premarket trade after the world’s biggest toothpaste maker said earnings-per-share growth would slow in 2011.

Shares of 3M Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!mmm/quotes/nls/mmm (MMM 85.07, -5.30, -5.86%)  slid 1.5% after the diversified manufacturer lowered its 2010 outlook.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!lvs/quotes/nls/lvs (LVS 44.63, +3.57, +8.69%)  could be in focus after the firm reported better-than-expected results.

Upbeat results from Symantec Corp. /quotes/comstock/15*!symc/quotes/nls/symc (SYMC 16.45, +0.65, +4.11%)  could lift shares of the security software maker.

Other potential movers include Sourcefire Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!fire/quotes/nls/fire (FIRE 23.73, -7.26, -23.43%) , as the network-security-software group issued a weak forecast.

Shoe retailer Skechers USA Inc. /quotes/comstock/13*!skx/quotes/nls/skx (SKX 19.33, -4.30, -18.20%)  could see pressure after saying in its third-quarter report that it had more inventory than initially expected.

European stocks rose. Gains for Royal Dutch Shell /quotes/comstock/13*!rds.a/quotes/nls/rds.a (RDS.A 63.79, +1.04, +1.66%)   /quotes/comstock/13*!rds.b/quotes/nls/rds.b (RDS.B 63.08, +0.92, +1.48%)   /quotes/comstock/23s!e:rdsa (UK:RDSA 1,995, +8.00, +0.40%)   /quotes/comstock/23s!e:rdsb (UK:RDSB 1,974, +12.00, +0.61%)  helped prop up London markets after the oil giant reported a profit that beat forecasts.

Strong results from drug firm Sanofi-Aventis /quotes/comstock/13*!sny/quotes/nls/sny (SNY 34.79, +0.41, +1.19%)   /quotes/comstock/24s!e:san (FR:SAN 49.82, +0.12, +0.23%)  also boosted sentiment.

In the currency markets, the U.S. dollar fell against its major rivals, with the dollar index /quotes/comstock/11j!i:dxy0 (DXY 77.74, +0.43, +0.56%)  slipping 0.5% to 77.741.

Gold for December delivery rose $9.1 to $1,331.7 an ounce in electronic trading on Globex. Oil futures were little changed at $82.09 a barrel.
