Here are five things you must know for Monday, Oct. 9:

1. -- U.S. stock futures were higher on Monday, Oct. 9, after a record-breaking streak for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 came to an end on Friday, Oct. 6, following the first contraction in seven years for U.S. jobs.
 
European stocks traded mixed on Monday amid Catalonia's push for independence from Spain and British Prime Minister Theresa May's efforts to stabilize her leadership and right the country's stalled Brexit negotiations.
The economic calendar in the U.S. on Monday is light. It's Columbus Day in the U.S. Stock markets are open but banks will be closed.
 
Oil prices early in the U.S. on Monday rose 0.08% to $49.33 a barrel. The commodity tumbled 3% on Friday after a weekly reading on drilling activity in the U.S. showed a decline in the number of active rigs and as Hurricane Nate barreled toward the Gulf of Mexico.
 
The Labor Department said Friday the U.S. economy lost 33,000 jobs in September, shocking economists looking for 85,000 jobs to have been added. The U.S. nonfarm payrolls report showed its first contraction in seven years, a result of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma that hit Texas and Florida, respectively.

2. -- Honeywell International Inc. ( HON)  reportedly plans to spin off non-core assets and create at least two new publicly listed companies, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The move would represent the first major shakeup at the U.S. industrial conglomerate since Darius Adamczyk succeeded David Cote as CEO in April, Reuters noted. 

The sources told Reuters on Sunday, Oct. 8, that while Honeywell would defy calls by one of its shareholders, activist hedge fund Third Point LLC, to spin off its aerospace division, it would still seek to carve out assets worth several billions of dollars.

Honeywell is hoping to unveil the spinoff plan as early as this week, Reuters reported, citing sources.

3. -- Walmart Stores Inc. (WMT)  continues to beef up its e-commerce capabilities, announcing Monday that it would begin offering mobile returns, its latest new e-commerce offering as it fights rival Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN)  for online shopping dollars.

Through Walmart's Mobile Express Returns, beginning in November, Walmart customers can use the retailer's app to initiate a return, completing the process by dropping the item off at any store's Mobile Express Lane and scanning the app's QR code.
 
The new mobile returns will be available first for Walmart.com purchases, with in-store purchases added early next year. Walmart also said it's currently planning a similar returns process for items purchased from third-party sellers on Walmart.com.
 
In addition, beginning in December, Walmart customers can be refunded on the app for some items like shampoo and cosmetics without needing to return the item to stores at all.
 
Walmart shares rose 0.8% in premarket trading on Monday.

 
4. -- Harvey Weinstein was fired by the Weinstein Co., said a statement from the board late Sunday, Oct. 8, after reports of sexual harassment.
 
Weinstein took a voluntary leave of absence from the company he co-founded with his brother Bob Weinstein on Friday, Oct. 6, after a New York Times expose uncovered sexual misconduct allegations that spread over nearly three decades. Actors Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan were among Harvey Weinstein's accusers.
 
 
"In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of the Weinstein Company -- Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar -- have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with the Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately," the board said Sunday.
 
It was alleged in the Times article that Weinstein reached eight settlements with women he had sexually harassed. 
 
Harvey Weinstein and his brother own 42% percent of the independent movie and television studio.

5. -- Shares of Deutsche Bank AG (DB)  fell 1.2% in Frankfurt on Monday amid reports of a rift between CEO John Cryan and Chairman Paul Achleitner over a meeting with the bank's biggest investor and the overall strategy of Germany's biggest bank.

HNA Group Co, a China-based investor that holds a 9.9% stake in Deutsche Bank through an Austrian asset management firm based in London, has reportedly sought a face-to-face meeting with Cryan on two occasions, Bloomberg reported, while The Wall Street Journal has suggested that Cryan and Achleitner are at odds over the relationship between the bank and its biggest shareholder.
