Investing.com - Dow futures fell Thursday evening following a deluge of Big Tech earnings, as disappointments from Amazon and Apple soured investor sentiment following a strong performance from major benchmark averages during regular trade.

By 6:35pm ET (10:35pm GMT) Dow Jones Futures were down 0.3%, S&P 500 Futures fell 0.8% and Nasdaq 100 Futures were down 1.4%.

In extended deals, Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) retreated 8.6% after the company reported first-quarter results while issuing weaker-than-expected revenue guidance for the second quarter. Adjusted EPS came in at $7.38 versus $8.36 expected, on revenues of $116.44 billion versus $116.3 billion expected. The company also recorded a $7.6 billion loss on its Rivian investment.

Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) was down 2.3% despite posting a strong earnings beat, while CFO Luca Maestri noted that supply chain constraints could hinder fiscal third-quarter revenues. EPS came in at $1.52 versus $1.43 expected on revenues of $97.28 billion versus $93.89 billion expected.

Robinhood Markets Inc (NASDAQ:HOOD) retreated 10.6% after reporting losses per share of 45 cents versus 36 cents expected on revenues of $299 million versus $355.8 million expected. The company also reported a decrease in monthly active users, to 15.9 million from 17.7 million a year ago.

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) dipped 4% after the company reported results and issued weaker than expected guidance for its fiscal second quarter. Adjusted EPS came in at 87 cents versus 81 cents expected on revenues of $18.35 billion, versus $18.31 billion expected.

Western Digital Corporation (NASDAQ:WDC) moved 0.7% higher in extended trade after the company reported earnings per share of $1.65 versus $1.49 expected on revenue of $4.38 billion versus $4.34 billion expected. It also topped revenue estimates and issued strong guidance for the next quarter.

On the economic front, the Commerce Department reported that U.S. gross domestic product unexpectedly declined in the first quarter by 1.4% from the previous year, compared to market expectations of 1% growth.

Looking ahead, investors are focusing on fresh personal consumption expenditures data, while the Michigan consumer sentiment index is also due out at 10am ET. Meantime, Honeywell International Inc (NASDAQ:HON) and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) are slated to report earnings results before the bell, while energy companies Exxon Mobil Corp (NYSE:XOM), Chevron Corp (NYSE:CVX) and Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) will also report.
