United Health helps to push the Dow Jones futures higher

The biggest company within the Dow Jones has just now reported its Q1 earnings. The company in question is United Health Group Inc (UNH) and it has marginally beaten analyst estimates on top and bottom line earnings. However, that was not really much of a surprise from this bell weather giant, but it has helped to lift the Dow Jones futures ahead of the opening. Earlier today the index was priced to open below 37,590. It is now pushing higher and indicating a reopening at, or above 37,775. Shortly another US Dow component will also report their Q1 earnings, at around 10.20 GMT. That is Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), who are ranked number 20 within the index of 30.
