US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Futures trim losses after jobless data

NEW YORK, Dec 30 (BestGrowthStock) – S&P 500 stock index futures
trimmed slight losses on Thursday after new U.S. claims for
unemployment benefits dropped more than expected last week to
touch their lowest level in more than two years.

S&P 500 futures (SPc1: ) shed 0.8 points and were slightly
below fair value, a formula that evaluates pricing by taking
into account interest rates, dividends and time to expiration
on the contract. Dow Jones industrial average futures (DJc1: )
lost 8 points, and Nasdaq 100 futures (NDc1: ) rose 1.75 point.
