NEW YORK, Feb 28 (Reuters) - The S&P 500 index futures
briefly turned negative on Thursday following mixed data reports
that showed that the U.S. economy barely grew in the fourth
quarter, though the latest weekly jobless claims data pointed to
an improving labor market.
S&P 500 futures were flat and in line with 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 added 3
points and Nasdaq 100 futures rose 1.5 points.
