U.S. stock index futures pointed to a flat to higher open on Wednesday, ahead of more major earnings releases and some key housing data.
Coca-Cola, McDonald's and Facebook are among the 31 companies due to report on other bumper day of earnings. Others include Boeing, Bank of NY Mellon and Six Flags before the bell, and AT&T, eBay, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments after the close.
Coca-Cola earned an adjusted 48 cents per share for the first quarter, six cents above estimates, with revenue also above forecasts. Global case volume did fall short of estimates, although the company delivered a better-than-expected quarter in the European market.
McDonald's earnings missed on both the top and bottom lines.
