Market preview: U.S. stock futures are higher along with much of Europe, although not France and Spain, with the S&P benchmark +0.6%. Platitudes from the G8 that they want Greece to stay in the euro and polls showing increasing support for pro-austerity parties seem to be doing the trick. Yahoo is +4.4% on its Alibaba deal, but Facebook is -3.8% and below its IPO price, while Lowe's is -5.5% after a profit warning.
