Investing.com - U.S. stock futures were trading higher during Thursday’s evening deals, after major benchmark averages finished the regular session in a mixed fashion amid stronger than expected producer price data, while earnings reports from major financials companies came in below expectations.

By 7:00pm ET (11:00pm GMT) Dow Jones Futures were up 0.2% while S&P 500 Futures and Nasdaq 100 Futures added 0.3% apiece.

In extended deals, Pinterest Inc (NYSE:PINS) shares surged 15.8% following a Wall Street Journal report that noted activist investor Elliott Management's stake of more than 9%.

Ahead in the session, investors will be monitoring June retail sales, import and export prices, June’s industrial production report and July’s preliminary consumer sentiment data. Meantime, Wells Fargo &Company (NYSE:WFC) and Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C) are expected to report earnings results.

During Thursday’s regular trade, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 142.6 points or 0.5% to 30,630.2, the S&P 500 dipped 11.4 points or 0.3% to 3,790.4 while the NASDAQ Composite finished just 3.6 points higher at 11,251.2.

Financial heavyweights retreated amid weaker than expected earnings, with Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) down 0.4% after reporting Q2 EPS of $1.44 versus $1.57 expected, while revenues came in at $13.13billion versus $13.39 billion expected.

JPMorgan Chase&Co (NYSE:JPM) fell 3.5% after reporting Q2 EPS of $2.76 versus $2.94 expected on revenues of $30.72 billion versus $31.82 billion expected.

On the data front, producer prices in June surged 11.3% versus a year ago as energy prices jumped, adding to concerns of aggressive rate hikes after last session’s CPI figure surpassed expectations.

On the bond markets, United States 10-Year yields were at 2.958%.
