US futures indicate a positive start after yesterday's higher close

US stocks are set to open higher again after a positive finish Monday with Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) the stock to watch in pre-market trade.

Shares are up nearly 7% before the bell after the entertainment company released its first-quarter earnings, which were in line with Wall Street estimates, while revenues were a slight beat.

The film streaming giant added nearly 2mln new US subscribers in the quarter - 500mln more than analysts had expected.

Elsewhere, and in the same vein, Roku Inc (NASDAQ:ROKU) is up over 8% before the bell to US$35.68 after the streaming player manufacturer announced that sports satellite channel ESPN's direct-to-consumer service, ESPN+, was now available on all Roku streaming devices.

The new service provides access to on-demand content, live sporting events and original content.

Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is likely to be in focus today after it emerged yesterday it had suspended production of its Model 3.

Elon Musk's electric vehicle firm said the move was being made "to improve automation" and deal with bottlenecks.

 

Meanwhile, Celanese Corp (NYSE:CE) shares surged 5.71% to US$112.50 in pre-market after the global technology company reported earnings and revenues that came in above analysts' expectations. The group also increased its 2018 guidance.
