US open: Stocks higher as traders look ahead to tech earnings

(Sharecast News) - Wall Street stocks were in the green early on Monday as market participants looked ahead to key earnings from a number of major tech firms.
As of 1515 BST, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.31% at 38,102.65, while the S&P 500 advanced 0.57% to 4,995.66 and the Nasdaq Composite came out the gate 0.80% firmer at 15,403.93.

The Dow opened 116.25 points higher on Monday, extending gains recorded in the previous session.

Tech earnings will be the flavour of the week this time around, with electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla, Facebook parent company Meta Platforms, software giant Microsoft, iPhone maker Apple, chipmaker Intel, and Google owner Alphabet all slated to report in the week ahead.

On the macro front, the Chicago Federal Reserve's national activity index rose to 0.15 in March, up from an upwardly revised reading of 0.09 for February and beating expectations for a 0.09% reading for the highest reading since November 2023.

Later in the week, GDP numbers will be out on Thursday, while the Commerce Department will publish its March personal consumption expenditure price index numbers, the Federal Reserve's preferred inflation gauge, on Friday.
