Stock futures point to early drop from record levels

NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures edged lower on Tuesday, as investors found few reasons to keep buying with the Dow and S&P 500 just below the latest in a string of records.

* Equities have been strong lately, with the S&P ending at records for the past four sessions, and rising in 11 of the past 13. While Wall Street’s upward trend is still seen as intact, it may be harder to continue notching solid gains in the absence of big catalysts.

Wall St edges up, lifted by mergers, acquisitions

NEW YORK, June 9 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks advanced on Monday,
boosted by a number of major acquisition deals, though gains
were slight with key indexes continuing to hover around records.

If the S&P 500 ends higher on Monday, that will mark its
11th rise of the past 13 sessions, and its seventh record close
of the past eight trading days. While Wall Street’s upward trend
looks intact, traders may need new catalysts to bid the market
up further lest the momentum runs out of steam.

Futures point to dip at the open despite deals

NEW YORK, June 9 (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures
pointed to modest losses at the open on Monday, as a rash of
corporate deals weren’t enough reason for investors to keep
buying following a rally that has taken major indexes to
repeated record highs.

* The S&P 500 has risen in 10 of the past 12 sessions,
ending at records six times in the past seven trading days. On
Friday, the benchmark index was lifted by the May payroll
report, which pointed to improving economic conditions, though
it was slightly weaker than expected. While Wall Street’s upward
trend looks intact, traders may need new catalysts to maintain
its momentum.

Cyclicals lift Wall St to records after jobs report

NEW YORK, June 6 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks rose on Friday,
with major indexes extending a rally that has taken them to
repeated records, after the May payrolls report provided the
latest confirmation that economic conditions were improving.

The day’s gains were broad and led by cyclical sectors,
which outperform in times of economic expansion. Energy shares
were the day’s biggest gainers, up 0.8 percent, followed
by financials, up 0.6 percent. The only S&P 500 sectors
that fell on the day were telecom and health care, both of which
are considered defensive groups.
