Stock futures were higher Friday as traders assessed the latest corporate earnings results, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average tried to stretch its winning streak to 10 sessions. Futures tied to the Dow added 15 points, up 0.04%. S&P 500 futures gained 0.3%, and Nasdaq-100 futures ticked up 0.5%. Transportation companies CSX and Knight-Swift fell 5% each in the premarket after reporting earnings that underwhelmed Wall Street analysts. Corporate earnings have been mixed thus far. Seventy-three percent of S&P 500 companies that have already reported exceeding analysts’ expectations, according to FactSet data. However, that beat rate is below a three-year average of 80%, according to The Earnings Scout. Wall Street is coming off an uneven session. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite lost around 0.7% and 2%, respectively. The Dow was the outlier of the three, adding nearly 164 points, or about 0.5%, for a nine-day rally — its longest since 2017 — and its highest close since March 2022. “The mixed broader indices are really reflective of the mixed earnings and economic data that’s come out,” said Greg Bassuk, CEO at AXS Investments. “Beyond Dow components, we’re seeing — across industries — more selling pressure based on these earnings results.” The Dow and S&P 500 are on pace to finish the week up about 2.1% and 0.7%, while the Nasdaq is poised to end 0.4% lower with just Friday’s session remaining. Asia-Pacific markets were mixed on Friday as investors digested Japan’s consumer price index figures for June. The country’s core inflation rate – which strips out costs of fresh food – came in at 3.3%, in line with expectations of economists polled by Reuters, official data showed. The Nikkei 225 fell 0.57% to end at 32,304.25, but the Topix was marginally up as the inflation data comes ahead of the BOJ’s closely watched meeting next week for its rate decision. South Korea’s Kospi rebounded and gained 0.37% to close at 2,609.76 and the Kosdaq advanced 0.32% to mark a nine day winning streak and reach its highest level since April 2022. Separately, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 slid 0.15% lower and finished at 7,313.9, dragged mainly by technology services stocks. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index climbed 0.71% in its final hour of trade. Mainland Chinese stocks also ended the day all in negative territory, with both the Shanghai Composite and the Shenzhen Component down marginally and closing at 3,167.74 and 10,810.18 respectively. Oil prices rose on Friday, buoyed by evidence of tightening supplies and economic stimulus in slow-recovering China. Brent futures were up 94 cents at $80.58 a barrel — rising as high as $1 earlier – while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude also climbed 94 cents to $76.59 a barrel. Gold prices slipped from a two-month high on Thursday as the dollar and bond yields ticked higher, although hopes for a pause in rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve after July meeting limited the decline. Spot gold was down 0.4% at $1,968.8477 per ounce by 4:09 p.m. EDT, after hitting its highest since May 17 earlier in the session. U.S. gold futures fell 0.4% to $1,972.
