Dow Jones Futures Fall 150 Points Ahead Of Housing Data; DraftKings Pops On Upgrade

Dow Jones futures dropped 150 points Tuesday morning ahead of key housing data. The fall came as sports betting giant DraftKings (DKNG) rose on an analyst upgrade.


Housing data was due Tuesday morning, with the early release of the Case-Shiller Home Price Index and the FHFA House Price Index. Both were expected at 9 a.m. ET. New home sales from the Commerce Department are out at 10 a.m. ET.

Wall Street expected the Case-Shiller index to rise 0.6% for July vs. June’s 0.9% increase. New-home sales are expected to slow to 699,000 in August, down from July’s 714,000 annual rate.

Finally, consumer confidence is also out at 10 a.m. ET. The index is expected to dip to 105.9 in September, down from August’s 106.1 reading.

Key earnings reports Tuesday morning include Cintas (CTAS) and Thor Industries (THO).

Cintas will report shortly. THO stock declined 3% in premarket trade after the recreational vehicle maker beat views, but offered a so-so outlook.
