NEW YORK (MarketWatch) â€" U.S. stock futures retained mild Monday gains after mixed economic reports showed retail sales rising 1.2% in October but a measure of business conditions in the New York region falling back into negative territory during November.

The data came with a round of deal-making as heavy-equipment manufacturer Caterpillar Inc. /quotes/comstock/13*!cat/quotes/nls/cat (CAT 81.04, -1.40, -1.70%)   said it would pay $7.6 billion for Bucyus International Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!bucy/quotes/nls/bucy (BUCY 69.62, -2.32, -3.22%)   and as data-storage company EMC Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!emc/quotes/nls/emc (EMC 21.72, -0.17, -0.78%)   said it would buy Isilon Systems Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!isln/quotes/nls/isln (ISLN 26.29, +0.30, +1.15%)  for $2.25 billion.

Scaling back about 20 points, futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average /quotes/comstock/21b!f:dj\z10 (DJZ10 11,198, +46.00, +0.41%)  were up 23 points at 11,175, while S&P 500 futures /quotes/comstock/21m!f:sp\z10 (SPZ10 1,199, +3.50, +0.29%)  gained 4.5 points to 1,199.9.

Lowe’s Cos. /quotes/comstock/13*!low/quotes/nls/low (LOW 21.69, -0.61, -2.74%) shares traded flat in the premarket after the nation’s No. 2 home-improvement retail chain reported sales climbed 1.9% in the third quarter, below analysts’ expectations.
