Futures rising as heart of earnings season begins

MGN Online

NEW YORK (AP) - Futures are rising to start a week in which a third of the Dow Jones Industrial Average reports quarterly earnings.

Monday offered a mixed scorecard. Hasbro and Halliburton beat Wall Street expectations. Caterpillar, a big bellwether for economic growth, slid in premarket trading after a tough quarter. It also cut its outlook for the year.

Earnings only heat up from here.

Netflix posts earnings after the bell Monday and on Tuesday, DuPont, AT&T, US Airways and Apple report.

The National Association of Realtors reports March sales of previously-owned homes on Monday. Economists expect sales rose to just over 5 million.
