Here are five things you must know for Wednesday, Nov. 23:
1. -- U.S. stock futures slipped slightly Wednesday while global stocks also weren't feeling so giddy about the Dow Jones Industrial Average setting a new high after surpassing 19,000 for the first time.
European stocks traded mixed, with shares in London higher but stocks in Germany and Paris trading to the downside. Asian stocks finished the session mixed. The Shanghai Composite Index declined 0.2% while Japanese markets were closed for a holiday.
The Dow on Tuesday closed at at a record 19,023.87. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq also closed with record highs for the second day in a row.
Crude oil in the U.S. early Wednesday dipped to $48.01 a barrel.
The economic calendar in the U.S. Wednesday includes minutes from the Federal Reserve's meeting earlier in November. Investors will be looking for confirmation of the likelihood the central bank will raise interest rates in December.
The Federal Open Market Committee opted to leave rates unchanged at the meeting, but reiterated that the case for a hike had strengthened. The minutes will be released at 2 p.m. EST.

2. -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) posted adjusted earnings Tuesday of 61 cents a share in its fiscal fourth quarter as revenue declined 7% to $12.5 billion, missing analysts' forecasts of $12.8 billion.
CEO Meg Whitman said during a conference call that Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which split from HP Inc. (HPQ) in November 2015, was "on track" with some its moves to divest some $17 billion in assets.
Following the divestitures, the company "can be much more targeted in the investments we make," Whitman noted. "We ought to be able to run much leaner and meaner."
Hewlett Packard Enterprise sells hardware, software and services aimed for corporate buyers.
HP Inc., which sells printers and PCs, posted revenue growth of 2% in its fiscal fourth quarter.
Deere & Co (DE) posted fiscal fourth-quarter profit of 90 cents a share, well ahead of analysts' estimates of 40 cents.
The stock gained 3.3% in premarket trading on Wednesday.
Revenue of $6.52 billion topped forecasts of $6.16 billion.
Deere said it expects equipment sales to fall about 1% in fiscal 2017 and declined about 4% in the first quarter from the same periods a year earlier.
3. -- Facebook (FB) has quietly developed software to suppress posts from appearing in people's news feeds in specific geographic areas, a feature the social network created to help Facebook get into China, a market where the social network has been blocked, three current and former Facebook employees told the New York Times.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg has supported and defended the effort, the people added.
Facebook has restricted content in other countries before, such as Pakistan, Russia and Turkey, in keeping with the typical practice of American Internet companies that generally comply with government requests to block certain content after it is posted, the Times noted. Facebook blocked roughly 55,000 pieces of content in about 20 countries between July 2015 and December 2015, for example. But the new feature takes that a step further by preventing content from appearing in feeds in China in the first place, according to the Times.
"We have long said that we are interested in China, and are spending time understanding and learning more about the country," a Facebook spokeswoman said in a statement, adding that the company had made no decisions on its approach into China.
4. -- A U.S. banking regulator is considering whether to harden sanctions against lenders that abuse their clients or violate banking laws, according to a draft plan seen by Reuters, that was drawn up in the wake of a scandal at Wells Fargo (WFC) .
Wells Fargo in September agreed to pay $190 million to settle charges that bank employees opened as many as 2 million fraudulent accounts without customers' knowledge.
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the chief regulator for national banks, waived its right to curb executive payouts, screen new leadership and other controls at Wells Fargo following the scandal. But, according to a memo outlining the new policy, the agency expects tougher scrutiny on when to issue such exemptions in the future and senior officials should be involved in any decision.
5. -- German airline Lufthansa canceled nearly 900 flights on Wednesday, affecting some 100,000 passengers, after pilots launched a two-day strike in a pay dispute.
The Cockpit union initially called members out on a 24-hour strike Wednesday. Late Tuesday night, after Lufthansa tried and failed to have courts block the walkout, it said that they also would strike on Thursday.
The company canceled 876 of the Lufthansa group's planned 3,000 flights on Wednesday, among them 51 long-haul flights, and said that around 100,000 passengers were affected.
It expressed "complete incomprehension" at Cockpit's decision to extend the strike and said it would make preparations to deal with the Thursday walkout.
