U.S. stock futures were mixed Wednesday evening while investors pondered the outcome of the presidential election and interest was reignited in earnings season.
S&P 500 futures were down 0.14% and Dow futures dropped 0.17% at 9:10 p.m. Eastern. Nasdaq futures gained 0.06%.
Investors have begun to consider what companies would perform best under Donald Trump's proposed low-tax, low-regulation administration -- a policy stance that could lead to inflation. While global markets had declined early Wednesday as Trump's victory became apparent, stocks rebounded and markets in Asia, Europe and the U.S. ended the day mostly higher.
Both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq gained 1.11% on Wednesday while the Dow closed 1.4% higher. In Europe, the DAX added 1.56%, the FTSE 100 gained 1% and the CAC rose 1.49%.
