NEW YORK, May 9 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures pared some losses on Thursday after data showed jobless claims fell in the latest week.

S&P 500 futures dipped 2 points and were slightly below fair value, a formula that evaluates pricing by taking into account interest rates, dividends and time to expiration on the contract. Dow Jones industrial average futures were down 6 points and Nasdaq 100 futures fell 9.75 points.
