U.S. stock index futures were edging slightly higher on Thursday morning on a bumper day for corporate earnings.
Around 6 a.m. ET, Dow futures indicated a positive open of more than 30 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were also hovering around the flatline.
Wall Street ended Wednesday on a slightly positive note despite earnings from Caterpillar and Boeing which both missed analysts’ expectations.
The market focus Thursday remains on the corporate sector. Thursday marks the busiest day of the earnings season. Comcast, American Airlines, and Twitter are among some of the major companies set to report before the opening bell. Amazon, Intel, and Visa will be reporting their latest quarterly figures after the market close.
