Investing.com - U.S. stock futures traded slightly higher during Tuesday’s evening deals after major benchmark averages finished the regular session lower as investors looked ahead to key inflation data.

By 07:00 PM ET (2300 GMT) Dow Jones Futures, S&P 500 Futures and Nasdaq 100 Futures were all up 0.1%

The consumer price index, slated at 08:30 a.m. ET, Wednesday, is expected to touch fresh 41-year highs of 8.8% in June, lifting from May’s reading of 8.6%. Surging inflation pressures are likely to bolster bets of another 75 basis point hike at the next Federal Reserve meeting as policymakers forge ahead with an aggressive rate tightening timeline.

Meanwhile, investors will be closely monitoring second-quarter corporate earnings, with Delta Air Lines Inc (NYSE:DAL) reporting before the bell Wednesday, while JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE:JPM) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) are set to report Thursday.

During Tuesday’s regular session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 192.5 points or 0.6% to 30,981.3, the S&P 500 dipped 0.9% to 3,818.8, and the NASDAQ Composite fell 107.9 points or 1% to 11,264.7.

Among stocks, energy companies tumbled as oil price declined amid growing recession fears. Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:OXY) fell 3.6%, Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN) dipped 2.6%, Diamondback Energy Inc (NASDAQ:FANG) lost 3.5%, and Exxon Mobil Corp (NYSE:XOM) fell 1.3%.

Technology companies were mixed, with Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) down 0.5%, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) lifting 4.3%, Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) down 2.3%, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) dropping 4.1%, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) up 0.7%, and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) falling 1.4%.

PepsiCo Inc (NASDAQ:PEP) kicked off the corporate earnings season on Tuesday, reporting Q2 EPS of $1.86 versus $1.74 expected while revenue came in at $20.23 billion versus $19.51 billion expected.

Airline and travel-related companies surged, with American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL) popping 10% after noting expectations for total revenue in the second quarter to top 2019 levels. United Airlines Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:UAL) lifted 8.1%, Delta Air Lines Inc (NYSE:DAL) gained 6.2%, while Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC) lifted 7.4%, and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NYSE:NCLH) gained 5.8%.

On the bond markets, United States 10-Year yields were at 2.97%.
