NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here are 10 things you should know for Tuesday, June 11:
1. -- U.S. stock futures were pointing to a lower open on Wall Street, signaling that the S&P 500 would slip for a second day Tuesday after the Bank of Japan kept its monetary policy unchanged, saying that its outlook on the Japanese economy has improved.
2. -- The economic calendar in the U.S. Tuesday includes wholesale inventories for April at 10 a.m. EDT.
3. -- U.S. stocks on Monday finished mixed following an upward revision to Japan's gross domestic product figure and Standard & Poor's improved credit rating outlook for the U.S. The S&P 500 slipped 0.03% to 1,642.81 while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.06% to 15,238.52. The Nasdaq added 0.13% to 3,473.77.
4. -- Japan's Softbank raised its offer for Sprint (S) by $1.5 billion to $21.6 billion. Softbank also significantly increased the cash it will pay to Sprint's current investors. SoftBank will now buy Sprint shares for $7.65 a share by upping its stake in the No. 3 telco to 78% and increasing the cash component of the merger by $4.5 billion.
