Dow Jones Futures Rise As CPI Inflation Data Looms; 8 Best Stocks To Buy and Watch

Dow Jones futures climbed modestly on Tuesday morning as Wall Street awaited the release of Wednesday's consumer price index (CPI). The tech giants Meta Platforms and Nvidia are among the best stocks to watch and buy.

Wall Street expected 0.3% monthly increases for both the core CPI and overall CPI on Wednesday morning. Core CPI inflation, which excludes food and energy costs, may drop from 5.3% in May to 5%, or even lower, because the 0.6% increase per month in June 2022 is not included.

The second quarter earnings season will also begin this week with Delta Air Lines, Cintas, and Fastenal all reporting on Thursday. The official start of the earnings season will be marked by the reports from the big banks on Friday. JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo are all due to release their results.
