July 10 (Reuters) - Some U.S. stocks to watch on Wednesday:
FUTURES LOWER AFTER CHINA DATA; FED MINUTES ON TAP
U.S. stock index futures dipped, indicating the S&P 500 may halt a four-day winning streak, after weaker-than-expected economic data from China and as investors looked to the release of minutes from the Federal Reserve's June meeting. S&P 500 futures were down 2.8 points, Dow Jones industrial average futures down 11 points, and Nasdaq 100 futures down 4.5 points.
**BLACKBERRY, Tuesday close $9.63
The Canadian smartphone maker signaled on Tuesday that a licensing deal, or even an outright sale of the company, was still a possibility, pleasing shareholders still reeling from the disappointing debut for its new line of smartphones. [ID: nL1N0FF0ZO]
