May 10 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Wednesday as investors awaited a fresh batch of corporate earnings.

Linamar Corp, Sunopta Inc and Gluskin Sheff + Associates are some of the companies scheduled to report quarterly results later in the day.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.14 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index fell on Tuesday as banks, oil and gas companies pulled the market lower, but losses were modestly tempered by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International and Home Capital Group Inc stocks, which soared as investors cheered news from the companies.

No major Canadian economic releases are scheduled for the day.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.25 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.18 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.07 percent.
