(Bloomberg) -- U.S. index futures are pointing to a rebound for equities at the open on Wall Street after concerns over tougher coronavirus-related lockdowns yesterday fueled the S&P 500 Index’s worst decline in more than four months.S&P 500 contracts expiring in December were up 0.9% as of 8:10 a.m. in London, after earlier rising as much as 1.5%. Futures on the Nasdaq 100 and Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 1.1% and 0.7% respectively. Stocks tumbled Wednesday amid a surge in Covid-19 hospitalizations, especially in the Midwest, while the lack of a fiscal stimulus deal ahead of next week’s presidential election added to investor pessimism.“There’s a degree of short covering and opportunistic buying after the big selloff,” said Ilya Spivak, head Asia Pacific strategist at DailyFX. “I don’t think it means anything in terms of a big leg up for U.S. stocks. This is just a short-term, tactical move.”European equities also rebounded, following yesterday’s slide to a five-month low for the Stoxx Europe 600 Index amid tightening restrictions in Germany and France. The benchmark was up 0.3%, ahead of a European Central Bank meeting later today.Asian stocks were moderately lower. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index fell 0.2%. The Topix closed down 0.1%, paring its loss after the Bank of Japan maintained policy and said it stands ready to take further action if needed. The Kospi slid 0.8% after a disappointing outlook from Samsung Electronics Co.With news about Europe’s stricter virus measures “digested,” the U.S. market will revert to focus on the presidential election,” said Ben Emons, head of global macro strategy at Medley Global Advisors. “The blue wave remains priced in, which means the market will refocus on stimulus.”House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she hopes the recent selloff in U.S. stocks will prompt President Donald Trump to agree to Democratic demands in stalled stimulus talks and end a three-month stalemate that has added to tension ahead of the Nov. 3 vote. Polls predict Trump will be defeated by Joe Biden, whose Democratic Party is also expected to win control of Congress.Investors will also be looking toward earnings reports due after the close from major tech companies including Apple Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and Facebook Inc.Positive news from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s late-stage trial of an antibody cocktail therapy for Covid-19 and possible measures emerging the ECB statement should add “positive momentum” heading into the U.S. equity market open Thursday, according to Medley’s Emons.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc set out to woo disgruntled investors by raising its dividend and pledging to grow it steadily, making amends for slashing the payout just six months ago.Amid a painful year for Big Oil, the Anglo-Dutch energy giant offered investors some good news. It also reported a larger-than-expected profit for the third quarter, lower net debt and strong cash flow, even as most of its divisions continued to be battered by the coronavirus pandemic.Shares of the company jumped as much as 5.1% to 910.4 pence, the biggest gain since August.Shell’s dividend for the quarter will increase by 4% to 16.65 cents a share and grow annually thereafter, the company said in a statement on Thursday. However, after the deep cut announced in April, the payout is little more than a third of its 2019 level.“The board is confident we can grow the dividend with 4% this year and with similar percentages in years to come,” Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden said in a Bloomberg TV interview. Shell is demonstrating that it’s “a compelling investment case,” he said.Shell’s adjusted net income was $955 million in the third quarter, down 80% from the same period a year ago, but better than even the highest analyst estimate. Earnings were hit by lower prices for oil and liquefied natural gas, and weaker refining, but that was partly offset by lower operating expenses and better marketing margins.The company’s other financial measures also offered some comfort to investors. Gearing, a measure of debt to equity, dropped to 31.4% from 32.7% in the second quarter. Net debt fell to $73.5 billion, and Shell pledged to further increase shareholder distributions once that figure reaches $65 billion.Shell has delivered a strong set of results that puts the company “back on the front foot” with investors, RBC analyst Biraj Borkhataria said in a note.(Updates with share price in third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
