Stock futures were little changed lower Sunday evening, pointing to a muted start to the week.
This week, investors will turn their attention to another set of corporate earnings results, though the number of reports per day will slow from the heavy pace of the past couple weeks. Economic releases will include two sets of US inflation reports, along with the Commerce Department’s July print on advance retail sales.
Defensive sectors were among the gainers. Value names also advanced. The S&P; 500 value index rose, while the S&P; 500 growth index fell.
