Investors were catching their breath Tuesday morning, a day after U.S. markets notched further gains and benchmark indexes closed at record highs.

U.S. stock futures rose ahead of a session likely to be dominated by earnings data from corporate America.

Shares of DirecTV (DTV, Fortune 500) rose in premarket trading after the company reported better-than-expected earnings. Molson Coors Brewing (TAP), meanwhile, reported sales and profits that fell short of forecasts.

OfficeMax (OMX, Fortune 500) widely missed earnings forecasts and said revenue this year would come in below analysts' estimates. At the same time, the office supply company issued a special dividend of $1.50 a share.

Also, Walt Disney Company (DIS, Fortune 500), which reports earnings after the close, inked a deal with Electronic Arts (EA) to co-develop Star Wars video games.

Whole Foods (WFM, Fortune 500) and Kraft spin-off Mondelez (MDLZ) are among the other companies set to report results after the market close..
