[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +69.60. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +273.50.

The S&P 500 futures trade 70 points, or 1.7%, above fair value as positive reactions to earnings reports help drive the rebound-minded bias. The Nasdaq 100 futures outperform and trade 2.1% above fair value.

Meta Platforms (FB 203.68, +28.73, +16.4%) is setting the tone with a 16% pre-market gain following its earnings report, followed by healthy gains in Qualcomm (QCOM 144.80, +9.70, +7.2%), McDonald's (MCD 252.00, +4.86, +2.0%), and Merck (MRK 86.40, +1.99, +2.4%), among others.

To be fair, there are always outliers like Teladoc (TDOC 32.40, -23.59, -42.1%), which has cratered over 40% on disappointing guidance. It appears, though, that the TDOC weakness is relatively contained rather than spreading to other growth stocks.

In other developments, the Bank of Japan made no headline policy changes; Democrats are attempting to revive Build Back Better discussions, according to The Wall Street Journal; and OPEC+ is likely to agree to another 432,000-bpd oil output increase for June when it meets next week, according to Reuters.

Regarding today's data, investors will receive the advance estimate for Q1 GDP ( consensus 1.1%) and the weekly Initial Claims ( consensus 182,000) and Continuing Claims report at 8:30 a.m. ET.

U.S. Treasuries trade little changed. The 2-yr yield is down one basis point to 2.56%, and the 10-yr yield is down one basis point to 2.81%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.7% to 103.66. WTI crude futures are down 0.4% to $101.57/bbl.
