This morning's producer price index (PPI) mimicked yesterday's consumer price index (CPI) by coming in slightly below analyst expectations. Wholesale prices rose 0.2% in April, compared to the anticipated 0.3% rise, and 2.3% on an annual basis -- the lowest reading since January 2021. Meanwhile, jobless claims came in at 264,000 for last week. 

Despite the encouraging data, Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) futures are down triple digits, with Walt Disney (DIS) earnings taking their toll on the blue-chip index. Futures on the S&P 500 Index (SPX) are marginally lower, while Nasdaq-100 Index (NDX) futures sit modestly higher.
