Dow Jones Futures Increase as Palantir Stock Falls on Earnings; Apple Event Announced


Tuesday’s stock market is set to open with Dow Jones futures on the rise. After Palantir Technologies’ first-quarter earnings results caused a significant drop in share prices, Apple is gearing up for its “Let Loose” event scheduled for today.

Palantir reported solid in-line quarterly earnings with higher than expected sales, leading to an 11% premarket drop in share prices. Other notable companies reporting earnings include Axon Enterprise, Lucid Motors, Microchip, and Vertex Pharmaceuticals. Shares of Axon, Lucid, and Microchip fell, while Vertex saw a slight increase in extended trading.

In Monday’s market action, the Dow Jones Industrial Average moved up 0.5%, the S&P 500 climbed 1%, and the Nasdaq composite gained 1.2%. Companies like Chipotle Mexican Grill, NXP Semiconductor, Texas Roadhouse, and Tradeweb Markets, along with Dow Jones components American Express and Merck, are worth keeping an eye on today. Tech giants Apple and Microsoft had mixed performances, with Apple declining and Microsoft rising.

Looking ahead to Tuesday’s trading session, Dow Jones futures were up 0.1%, S&P 500 futures flat, and Nasdaq 100 futures down 0.2%. With the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield slightly lower and oil prices on the rise, the market is poised for an interesting day.

Keeping an eye on companies like American Express and Merck could offer valuable insights into market trends. Additionally, companies like Chipotle, NXP Semiconductors, Texas Roadhouse, and Tradeweb Markets are showing promising growth potential.
