Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading slightly above yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…
Stock futures are mostly unchanged Thursday morning as the U.S. House passed a debt ceiling bill, moving it to the Senate. The bill’s passage provided some relief as concerns over a potential U.S. debt default persisted throughout May. Investors are now eyeing the upcoming Federal Reserve policy meeting and Friday’s payrolls report for further market direction.
In the news, Salesforce (CRM) and CrowdStrike (CRWD) both experienced pre-market declines. Salesforce dropped over 6% due to concerns about its 36% increase in capital expenditure during the quarter. CrowdStrike’s stock declined as its full-year profit forecast fell on the lower end of analyst expectations. In the retail sector, earnings reports provided a mixed picture of consumer spending. Nordstrom (JWN) exceeded analyst expectations, leading to a nearly 4% rise in shares. However, Macy’s (M) painted a different picture, causing its stock to slump over 7% after revising down its full-year sales and earnings-per-share guidance.
