U.S. stock futures edged up on the back of earnings reports that were interpreted by investors as positive signals about the economy.

Futures tied to the S&P 500 added 0.2%, suggesting the broad-market index could hold on to the previous day’s gains, when it closed up 2.8%. Nasdaq-100 futures rose 0.3% on Wednesday, pointing to muted gains for technology stocks after the opening bell.
