Market Hustle: Futures Pare Gains After Manufacturing Data, Coke Falls

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Stock futures were paring gains Tuesday after a worse-than-expected manufacturing report and as Coca-Cola  (KO) shares slid following the beverage giant's earnings announcement.

  • Coca-Cola (KO) was down 1.08% to $38.60 in premarket trading on Tuesday after posting in-line fourth-quarter earnings of 46 cents a share on revenue of $11.04 billion, which was less than the average sales forecast of $11.31 billion.
  • Netflix (NFLX) was adding 0.63% to $438.24 as Internet intelligence firm Procera reported that 16% of the Netflix subscribers watched at least one episode of the second season of House of Cards on a U.S. cable network after its release on Friday.
