    Stocks Headed for Higher Opening Ahead of Jobs Data, GDP


    NEW YORK (AP) -- Stocks pointed to a higher opening Thursday as traders reacted positively to another batch of acquisitions and awaited readings on the nation's gross domestic product and manufacturing sector.

    Investors expect the Commerce Department at 8:30 a.m. EDT to estimate that first-quarter GDP clocked in at 0.8 percent, down from the 1.3 percent projected in April.

    Later Thursday morning, the Commerce Department will report on construction spending, which is expected to have slipped 0.1 percent in April after rising 0.2 percent in March. The Chicago Purchasing Managers will release its manufacturing index. Economists predict the Chicago PMI to have risen to 54.0 in May from 52.9 in April.

    If the data suggest the economy is so slow as to dampen corporate profits, or so strong that it could prevent the Federal Reserve from lowering interest rates later this year, investors might sell off the huge gains it made in the previous session. Stocks soared Wednesday when minutes from the Fed's latest meeting indicated the central bank believes the housing market is still a drag on the economy, raising hopes for a rate cut.

    But while Wall Street is unsure about the economic outlook, it remains buoyed by the unrelenting surge of takeover activity. On Thursday, banking company Wachovia Corp. said it would acquire A.G. Edwards Inc. for $6.8 billion in cash and stock in a deal to form one of the largest retail stock brokerages in the country. And payroll processor Ceridian Corp. said late Wednesday it will be bought out by investment firm Thomas H. Lee Partners LP and insurance provider Fidelity National Financial Inc. for about $5.3 billion.

    Dow futures expiring in June rose 20, or 0.15 percent, to 13,676, after a strong 111-point gain Wednesday.

    Standard & Poor's 500 index futures rose 0.70, or 0.05 percent, to 1,534.60. The broad index on Wednesday closed at a new record for the first time since March 2000.

    Nasdaq 100 index futures rose 3.50, or 0.18 percent, to 1,926.00.

    Meanwhile Thursday, discount retailer Costco Wholesale Corp. and jewelry seller Tiffany & Co. released their financial results. Costco posted a fiscal third-quarter profit decline of 4.9 percent, while Tiffany reported a 15 percent rise in fiscal first-quarter profit -- indicating that consumer demand for big-ticket items remains robust.

    The dollar was mixed against other major currencies, while gold prices rose.

    Crude oil futures fell 30 cents to $63.19 a barrel in preopening electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, ahead of data on U.S. petroleum inventories.

    Chinese stocks rebounded Thursday after a sharp drop a day earlier. The Shanghai Composite Index rose 1.4 percent.

    Japan's Nikkei stock average rose 1.63 percent. In afternoon trading, Britain's FTSE 100 was up 0.57 percent, Germany's DAX index was up 1.32 percent, and France's CAC-40 was up 0.71 percent.
