U.S. Index Futures Signal Weekly Drop for Stocks Before GDP Data

U.S. stock-index futures dropped, signaling equities will drop for a second day, before data that may show the economy contracted in the first quarter.

Standard & Poor’s 500 Index E-mini contracts expiring next month slipped 0.3 percent to 2,115 at 10:10 a.m. in London, after losing as much as 0.5 percent. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures slid 67 points, or 0.4 percent, to 18,067.

Benchmark gauges yesterday pared their best monthly gains since February as investors awaited progress on Greek debt talks and assessed the strength of the U.S. recovery. Economists forecast the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates in September. Reports today on gross domestic product and consumer sentiment may provide further clues.

The economy shrank 0.9 percent in the first three months of the year, compared with a prior estimate indicating growth, a second reading may show at 8:30 a.m. in Washington. Another release may signal a smaller drop in May consumer sentiment than initially projected.

The S&P 500 is poised for its first weekly drop in four. It has still advanced 1.7 percent this month, closing at a fresh record last week. The Nasdaq Composite Index and the Dow also rose to all-time highs in May.

Among stocks moving on corporate news, GameStop Corp. added 3.5 percent in Germany after the video-game retailer raised its full-year forecast and reported first-quarter profit that beat analysts’ estimates.

Altera Corp. jumped 9.6 percent in premarket trading after the New York Post reported Intel Corp. is nearing a deal to buy the company for $ 54 a share. Equinix Inc. gained 1.7 percent in European trading after agreeing to buy Telecity Group Plc for 2.35 billion pounds ($ 3.6 billion).

U.S. Equities Fluctuate After Report Shows Economy Contracted

U.S. stocks fluctuated, as equities head toward monthly gains, after data showed the economy contracted in the first quarter.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index slipped less than 0.1 percent to 2,119.44 at 9:32 a.m. in New York, and is poised for its first weekly drop in four.

The S&P 500 has still advanced 1.7 percent this month, closing at a fresh record last week. The Nasdaq Composite Index and the Dow also rose to all-time highs in May. Investors today have an eye on Europe as stocks there declined for a second day on concern Greece won’t reach an agreement with creditors in time for a debt repayment.

An earlier report showed gross domestic product in the U.S. shrank at a 0.7 percent annualized rate, revised from a previously reported 0.2 percent gain, as the economy was held back by harsh winter weather, a strong dollar and delays at ports. The median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 0.9 percent drop.
