[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: -37.90. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -180.30.

The S&P 500 futures trade 38 points, or 0.9%, below fair value as discouraging outlooks from Apple (AAPL 159.50, -4.14, -2.5%) and (AMZN 2617.40, -274.53, -9.7%) set the negative tone in the futures market.

Apple's quarterly results were better than expected, but the stock's 2.5% decline is rooted in a warning that the impact from supply chain issues will be $4-8 billion in fiscal Q3, which is "substantially larger" than what it experienced during fiscal Q2. Amazon is down about 10% after guiding Q2 revenue and operating income below expectations.

Intel (INTC 44.88, -1.96, -4.2%) and Chevron (CVX 159.46, -2.33, -1.4%) are also trading lower after the former issued downside Q2 guidance and the latter missed earnings expectations. Honeywell (HON 193.30, +3.38, +1.8%), however, is a notable earnings standout.

At 8:30 a.m. ET, investors will receive another inflation update with the inclusion of PCE Prices in the Personal Income ( consensus 0.4%) and Spending ( consensus 0.6%) report for March and the release of the Q1 Employment Cost Index ( consensus 1.1%).

Afterwards, the Chicago PMI for April ( consensus 62.0) will be available at 9:45 a.m. ET, followed by the final University of Michigan Index of Consumer Sentiment for April ( consensus 65.7) at 10:00 a.m. ET.

Elsewhere, the 2-yr Treasury note yield is up four basis points to 2.68% while the 10-yr yield remains unchanged at 2.86%. The U.S. Dollar Index is down 0.6% to 102.97. WTI crude futures are up 1.0%, or $1.02, to $106.39/bbl.

10 yr off the high but up and elevated
