After a slew of better-than-anticipated earnings reports, stock futures indicated gains for the major benchmarks this morning. Investors were digesting the latest financial data from Bank of America, Pepsi, and United Health. Each of the three companies surpassed estimates, leading shares to increase.
Meanwhile, the retail sales report for March is out this morning, and analysts anticipate a 6.1% increase, boosted by the recent $1,400 stimulus checks, increased vaccinations, and a reopening economy. The news would come after a 3% decline in February.
Also out this morning: the Labor Department’s latest look at initial jobless claims for last week. Economists are expecting to see 710,000 new filings, which would reflect a decline from the prior week.
And Coinbase Global saw an 8% increase in shares during premarket trading, after yesterday’s strong (albeit volatile) debut.

However, the committee ultimately decided to postpone their recommendation as the investigation continues. The panel will get back together next week and determine what to do next.
This means that the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will remain off the market.
