U.S. Stock Futures Little Changed Before Consumer Report

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stock-index futures were little changed, paring earlier gains, as investors awaited a report on American consumer confidence.

Futures on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, expiring in December, rose less than 0.1 percent to 1,376.4 at 8:38 a.m. in London, trimming an earlier increase of as much as 0.5 percent. Dow Jones Industrial Average contracts expiring the same month slipped 1 point, less than 0.1 percent, to 12,774.

The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan consumer sentiment index probably climbed to 83 in November, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg before the preliminary reading due at 9:55 a.m. New York time today. The October reading of 82.6 was the highest since September 2007.
