What you need to know this morning:

  • Futures are red, pulling back from yesterday’s (and month’s end) strong close.
  • AMD and Starbucks highlight earnings after the close

Chart of the Day: AMD’s expected move is about 6.5%. Its two most recent earnings moved more than that, with 2 prior quarters’ moves nearly double.
