Futures flat as earnings offset deal news

Startbeitrag von swiss2005 am 09.02.2007 13:50

NEW YORK, Feb 9 (Reuters) - U.S. stock futures signaled a flat market opening on Friday as optimism about deal news and upgrades in the auto sector was offset by earnings disappointments.

Shares of General Motors Corp. GM.N and Ford Motor Co. F.N rose after Deutsche Bank raised its ratings on the U.S. automakers to a buy, while Citigroup raised Germany's DaimlerChrysler DCX.N to buy from hold as well.

In deal news, Britain's biggest bus company, FirstGroup FGP.L, announced it had agreed to buy Laidlaw International Inc. LI.N, the U.S. company that runs Greyhound buses, for $2.8 billion plus debt.

Also, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. GS.N is expected to bring in as much as $19 billion for its newest private-equity fund, the largest amount raised in this arena by a Wall Street firm, according to a Wall Street Journal report. For details, see [nN09271575].

"The liquidity is out there to take companies private, which takes supply off the market. If demand stays constant and supplies drop, that's positive for the market as well," said Paul Mendelsohn, chief investment strategist at Windham Financial Services in Charlotte, Vermont.
