U. S. Stocks Open Mixed Amid Earnings; Oil, Yen; Eyed, by Evelyn Cheng , CNBC

U.S. stocks opened mixed Tuesday amid a slew of Dow component earnings and further declines in oil prices.
The yen strengthened against the dollar ahead of the Bank of Japan's scheduled meeting later in the week, while Treasury yields were lower. The U.S. Federal Reserve is set to begin its two-day meeting Tuesday.

Six components of the Dow Jones industrial average reported quarterly earnings ahead of the open. Apple is scheduled to report after the close.

"It looks like the rebound is beginning to occur in earnings," said David Kelly, chief global strategist at J.P. Morgan Funds.

  • 3M posted earnings that beat by one cent a share, on revenue a touch below estimates. The firm lowered its guidance for 2016 sales growth.
  • Caterpillar reported earnings that beat on both the top and bottom line.
  • DuPont posted earnings that beat on both the top and bottom line, and raised its full-year forecast.
  • McDonald's fell more than 3 percent in pre-market trade after reporting a lower-than-expected rise in U.S. same-store sales. Quarterly earnings also missed expectations.
  • United Technologies raised full-year guidance and posted quarterly earnings that beat on both the top and bottom line.
  • Verizon reported quarterly earnings that topped expectations on revenue that missed. The telecommunications giant said a seven-week workers' strike hurt results.
The Federal Open Market Committee is set to begin its two-day meeting Tuesday. Traders do not expect the Fed to raise interest rates, but will watch the statement for indications on the timing of the next hike.

"On the Federal Reserve, I can't come up for any rationale for them to not to raise rates except that no one expects them to," Kelly said.
"I do think September is a live meeting. I think they'll try to establish that," he said.
