NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here are 10 things you should know for Friday, Aug. 14:
1. -- U.S. stock futures are sinking as investors feel mixed relief that the Chinese currency is stabilizing and fear that the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates next month.
European stocks eked out small gains after China made good on yesterday's promise of a more stable currency Friday. The Greek parliament voted in favor of the austerity package negotiated with the European Union after a fraught all-night debate.
In London, the FTSE 100 was up 0.15%, while in Paris, the CAC 40 was up just 0.03%. Frankfurt's DAX rose 0.17%.
Asian stocks fell slightly. Tokyo's Nikkei 225 closed down 0.37%, while the Hong Kong Hang Seng index slipped 0.12%. In China, the Shanghai Composite was up 0.27%.
2. -- The economic calendar in the U.S. on Friday includes the Producer Price Index -- final demand at 8:30 a.m., industrial production data at 9:15 a.m., and consumer sentiment numbers at 10 a.m.
3. -- U.S. stocks on Thursday were mixed after a day of up-and-down trading. Retail sales were higher and unemployment low, but investors were worried that the Federal Reserve might then raise interest rates in September.
4. -- The Greek parliament passed a bailout deal in order to be able to make a €3.2 billion ($3.6 billion) payment to the European Central Bank by its due date next Thursday. The bailout is for up to €86 billion, or about $95 billion. The deal still needs to be ratified by European finance ministers Friday.
The terms of the bailout deal are unappealing to many Greeks, and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is facing pushback. But without a deal, the country essentially faces bankruptcy and being pushed out of the euro currency.
5. -- Goldman Sachs (GS) - Get Report is buying some of the financial assets that General Electric (GE) - Get Report is selling -- in this case, an online deposit business. Goldman will pay $16 billion in the deal, acquiring online savings accounts and CDs. The deal must be approved by regulators before it is completed.
GE has been selling down its financial assets to focus more closely on its industrials business.
In premarket trading, GE stock is falling by 0.21%. Goldman stock was lower by 0.4% in premarket trading.
6. -- U.S. crude oil prices are at a six-year low as global oversupply sinks prices even further. West Texas Intermediate crude oil broke into the $41-a-barrel range. That's the lowest price since March 2009. Brent crude oil, meanwhile, was just above $49.
7. -- Sales of solar panels are up by a third in 2015, but solar stocks aren't doing very well on Wall Street. The price drops may be a result of larger concerns over the energy market.
King Digital said it earned a net profit of 38 cents a share for the quarter, or $119 million. That's a drop from 52 cents a share and $165 million in the year-ago quarter. Revenue also dropped.
In premarket trading, King Digital was dropping by 9.5%, after a 2.75% drop Thursday.
