Stock futures edge higher ahead of new home sales data

Stock futures show slight gains as investors shrug off some overseas weakness; S&P and Nasdaq +0.1%, Dow flat.

European markets slipped, pulling back from a six-year high, as worries over pressure on Ukraine's currency offset upbeat data out of Germany; Asian markets closed mixed.

Among earnings, Target +2.5% after edging past Wall Street expectations, and Lowe's +5.5% after reporting strong revenue growth

Treasurys sit near their flat lines to start the day; the benchmark 10-year yield is higher by one basis point at 2.71%.

Still ahead: new home sales, EIA petroleum inventories.
