US stock futures are rising, suggesting markets will rebound one day after worries over China’s real estate sector helped fuel a global selloff in stocks and commodities. We’ll see that before the opening on Tuesday.
- Uber Technologies rose 5.9% before the bell. The ride-hailing company said it could hit some level of profitability in the current quarter, months earlier than previously expected.
- Uber’s rival Lyft was up 2.3% in pre-trading.
- U.S. Bancorp shares rose 0.8% after the lender agreed to buy MUFG Union Bank, which operates about 300 branches mostly on the West Coast, for about $ 8 billion.
- Lennar lost more than 2% in pre-trading. The home builder said its third quarter earnings were impacted by supply chain challenges that are showing no signs of easing.
- Bill.com announced it will sell $ 1 billion worth of shares. The financial software share lost 5.1%.
- ConocoPhillips rose 1.7% after the oil and gas company agreed to buy all of Royal Dutch Shell’s assets in the Permian Basin for approximately $ 9.5 billion in cash. Shell investors cheered the deal: US-listed stocks rose more than 5%.
- Occidental Petroleum, Devon Energy and Phillips 66 rose early in trading as oil prices rose and the energy sector recovered from a broad sell-off. Occidental has repaid $ 4.5 billion in debt this year, the company said in a government filing late Monday.
- KKR gained nearly 2% after slipping more than 6% on Monday. Private equity stocks have broken this year.
- Bitcoin prices stabilized after plummeting Monday as investors abandoned riskier and speculative assets.
