Aug 12 (Reuters) - Some U.S. stocks to watch on Monday:
FUTURES LOWER, SUGGESTING RECENT DECLINE WILL PERSIST
U.S. stock index futures were lower on Monday, indicating the previous week's decline would continue as investors found few reasons to buy.
S&P 500 futures fell 8.5 points, Dow Jones industrial average futures lost 50 points, and Nasdaq 100 futures slid 14.5 points.
** BLACKBERRY LTD, Friday close $9.76
U.S.-listed shares of the Canadian smartphone maker were halted in premarket trading on Monday. Reuters reported last week that the company is warming up to the possibility of going private as it battles to revive its fortunes.
