U.S. stock index futures pointed to a higher open on Friday following a strong showing from three tech titans in their third quarter earnings and a dovish message from European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi on Thursday.
Futures also extended gains after the People's Bank of China cut its benchmark interest rates. Dow futures gained about 150 points, while Nasdaq futures implied an open of over 2 percent.
More major earnings before the bell included Procter & Gamble, American Airlines, VF Corp.
Procter posted better-than-expected earnings per share, but its revenue fell short of forecasts. American Airlines also beat on earnings per share, and its revenue came in line with expectations.
VF Corp. beat on both the top and bottom lines.
Markit flash manufacturing PMI at 9:45 a.m. ET is the only U.S. data Friday morning.
