Dow futures are up +1% this morning as we wait to hear from the Federal Reserve in the afternoon about its tightening plans after its two-day January meeting. The central bank releases its policy statement at 11 am PDT (2 pm ET). Fed officials are expected to say they’re ready to increase interest rates from near zero as soon as March after bond-purchase tapering ends. Four hikes are seen this year.

The 30-year Treasury yield dipped to around 1.78% early Wednesday. Last week, the benchmark yield topped 1.9% to highs back to January 2020.

Microsoft (MSFT) is up +4% premarket on strong earnings yesterday after the close. Microsoft’s second-quarter earnings and revenue beat estimates. Microsoft also gave an upbeat forecast for the current quarter, as cloud services revenue continues to post strong growth. The gaming component of Microsoft became more relevant to investors this month, when the company announced plans to acquire Call of Duty maker Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion. The largest deal in Microsoft’s 46-year history is expected to close in fiscal 2023.

Boeing (BA) took a $3.5 billion pretax charge on its 787 Dreamliners after production issues prevented the company from delivering the planes to airlines for most of the last 15 months. Before the bell, Boeing also said it generated positive cash flow in the fourth quarter, hitting that milestone earlier than forecast. It was driven by a jump in 737 Max deliveries last year after regulators lifted bans on the jets after two fatal crashes. Boeing added more than 2% in the premarket on a much wider-than-expected Q4 loss and missed on revenue.

President Joe Biden will meet in person Wednesday with the CEOs of 10 major corporations to discuss the potential benefits to business of his Build Back Better Act, the social safety net bill that passed the House last year but stalled in the Senate.
