U.S. stock index futures fell Friday as investors digested the latest round of corporate earnings, including results from Amazon. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures fell by 106 points, or 0.3%. S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 futures slipped 0.2% each. Amazon shares were down more than 3% after initially rising. The online retailer said its cloud business decelerated when reporting first-quarter results, though it did beat Wall Street’s expectations for revenue for the quarter. Meanwhile, Snap tumbled 18% in extended trading following a revenue miss. Pinterest shares fell almost 14% after issuing disappointing second-quarter revenue growth expectations. The earnings season has been better than expected. Of the 261 S&P 500 companies that have reported earnings, about 80% have reported positive surprises, according to FactSet data. On the more positive side, Intel shares climbed more than 5% after the semiconductor firm beat estimates on the top and bottom lines. Investors are coming off a strong trading session for the major averages, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 notching their best day since January. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite jumped 2%, posting its best day since March. Those gains come after a better-than-expected report from Meta fueled a rally in tech stocks. Investors appeared to shake off light GDP data that could signal the Federal Reserve’s rate-hiking campaign may soon come to an end. “Yesterday’s 2% stock rally, which was at odds with not-so-great Q1 inflation and GDP releases, may be part of the final ‘pull-up,’” Wells Fargo analyst Christopher Harvey said in a note to clients. Data released Friday morning showed personal consumption expenditures price index rose 0.3% in March, which was in line with economist expectations. The index is a key gauge of inflation for the Federal Reserve. Asia-Pacific markets largely rose on Friday after the Bank of Japan kept its monetary policy unchanged in the first monetary policy meeting chaired by new governor Kazuo Ueda. Japanese markets were all higher and led gains in the region, with the Nikkei 225 closing 1.4% higher at 28,856.44 following the central bank’s decision and the Topix rose 1.23% to end the day at 2057,48. The Japanese yen weakened 0.8% to 134.9 against the greenback. In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 was up 0.36% to finish at 7,318.7, while the South Korean Kospi inched up 0.23% higher to close at 2,501.53 and the Kosdaq ended 0.87% lower at 842.83. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index climbed 0.42% in its final hour, while the Hang Seng Tech index jumped 1.12%. In mainland China, the Shenzhen Component ticked up 1.08% to end at 11,338.67 and the Shanghai Composite rose 1.14% to close at 3,323.27. Oil prices were heading for another monthly decline on Friday after disappointing U.S. economic data and uncertainty over further interest rate hikes weighed on the demand outlook. Brent crude futures for June were up 34 cents, or 0.4%, at $78.71 a barrel while the more actively traded July contract was up 25 cents at $78.47. Brent is set for its fourth straight monthly fall. Brent prices retraced earlier losses after data showed the euro zone returned to growth in the first quarter, albeit only modestly and more slowly than expected. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude gained 10 cents, or 0.1%, to trade at $74.86 a barrel and is set for its sixth straight monthly decline. Data on Thursday showed that U.S. economic growth slowed more than expected in the first quarter. Gold prices eased on Friday as the dollar firmed in the run up to U.S. inflation data, but economic jitters kept safe-haven bullion on course for a second consecutive monthly rise. Spot gold edged 0.2% lower to $1,983.01 per ounce, but was up 0.8% for the month. U.S. gold futures eased 0.4% to $1,991.70.
