Dow Jones Futures Fall On Weak Microsoft Guidance; Tesla Earnings On Tap

2 min read

Dow Jones futures fell overnight, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures, as Microsoft (MSFT) guidance overrode better-than-feared earnings. ASML (ASML), Boeing (BA) and Tesla (TSLA) are on tap Wednesday.


The stock market rally traded in a relatively narrow range Tuesday after big gains in the prior two sessions. The major indexes closed mixed. The Nasdaq retreated as the Justice Department filed a second antitrust suit vs. Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL).

Microsoft earnings edged past views on strong cloud-computing growth. But the software giant gave weak guidance. MSFT stock, up strongly initially, reversed lower.

Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) and Texas Instruments (TXN) also reported. ISRG earnings missed with in-line revenue. Texas Instruments slightly beat, but guided lower. ISRG stock tumbled while TXN stock fell slightly.

Early Wednesday, chip equipment giant ASML reports, with fellow semiconductor equipment makers Lam Research (LRCX), Teradyne (TER) and Wolfspeed (WOLF) due after the close.

Boeing and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) also report early Wednesday.

Tesla will headline earnings Wednesday night. Tesla earnings will be important but investors will likely focus on 2023 guidance, especially following big price cuts worldwide to start the year. Those price cuts have boosted Tesla demand — at the expense of margins — but will that boost last?

After the close, Tesla said it will spend $3.6 billion at or around its original “Gigafactory” outside Reno, Nevada. It’ll be used for a Tesla Semi line and for mass producing 4680 battery cells.

Tesla stock fell 2% overnight. Shares edged up 0.1% on Tuesday to 143.89, nearing the 50-day line. TSLA stock is up nearly 17% so far in 2023.
