FUTURES EDGE UP AFTER FRIDAY'S SELL-OFF
Index futures rose slightly, indicating the S&P 500 may recover after the worst one-day decline since late June as investors looked for direction from the latest earnings and company outlooks.
S&P 500 futures rose 3.8 points and were roughly even with fair value, a formula that evaluates pricing by taking into account interest rates, dividends and time to expiration on the contract. Dow Jones industrial average futures gained 37 points, and Nasdaq 100 futures added 11.5 points.
