9:11 am S&P futures vs fair value: -25.10. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -56.10. (:WRAPX) :

The stock market is on track for a lower open as futures on the S&P 500 trade 25 points below fair value.

Index futures climbed overnight, showing modest gains earlier this morning, but the overnight move is now history considering futures fell to lows after the release of a Nonfarm Payrolls report for September.

Making matters worse, the prior month's reading was revised down to 136,000 from 173,000. Furthermore, the report showed no growth in hourly earnings while the consensus expected an increase of 0.2%.

The retreat in equity futures has occurred alongside a surge in Treasuries that has sent the 10-yr yield lower by 11 basis points to 1.93%.

Given the disappointing data and the lack of wage growth, market expectations for the first rate hike are all but sure to shift into next year.

7:37 am Stein Mart reports overall sales in September have been somewhat sluggish and now expects September comps will be negative low single digits vs +4.9% last year (SMRT) :

  • While the Company is delighted with Commack grand opening results, overall sales in September have been somewhat sluggish, impacted by one less week of post-Labor Day fall fashion selling, a shift of promotional events and unseasonably warm weather. The move of Labor Day to a week later in September this year resulted in several events being pushed back one week and a shoe and accessories event being moved from September to October. As a result, the Company expects September (five-week period ending October 3, 2015) comparable store sales will be negative low single digits compared to a strong 4.9% increase last year.
  • "We feel the warmer weather and shift in our promotional calendar has impacted sales this month...We clearly have the right merchandise in place to have a successful fall season once cooler weather arrives."

Retailers will report Sept sales next week on Thurs Oct 8 before the open.
