(Sharecast News) - US stocks were mostly higher at the start of the last trading week of the second quarter.

As of 1540 BST, the Dow Jones Industrials had snapped higher by 0.97% to 39,527.77, alongside a 0.26% gain for the S&P 500 to 5,478.79.

The Nasdaq Composite meanwhile was drifting down by 0.26% to 17,643.68.

On the positive side of things, analysts at JP Morgan told clients that they were not expecting things to get out of hand in France following the parliamentary elections that would start during the following weekend.

Nonetheless, they did fear that things would need to "get worse in order to get better" between the two rounds of voting and also "for a while" after the elections. They were anticipating a "good entry point" into eurozone stocks in the back half of 2024.

Shares of Nvidia were dropping 5% on apparent profit-taking following its recent sharp run higher.

On the economic side of things, the Dallas Fed's manufacturing sector index improved from a reading of -19.4 for May to -15.1 in June.

The three-month moving average for the Fed's national activity index improved from -0.17 in March to 0.01 in April.

The major release of the week would come on Friday's personal consumption expenditures (PCE) index for May, with the annual change in the core PCE - the Fed's preferred measure of inflation - expected to ease to 2.6% year-on-year from 2.8% the month before.

"Coming off the back of last week's bumper services PMI reading, there is a concern that the vibrancy of the US economy could ultimately produce a longer wait for those desperate for that first Federal Reserve rate cut," said , chief market analyst at Scope Markets.

"With crude oil prices on the rise once again today, keeping a lid on fuel costs will remain a key factor in avoiding a fresh resurgence in price pressures," Mahony said. West Texas crude was up 0.6% at $81.33 a barrel, retesting last week's multi-month highs above $82.

Apple shares were up bv 1% despite an accusation by European regulators that the company breached the Digital Markets Act digital-competition law.

UPS was higher by 2% following the sale of Coyote Logistics to RXO for just over $1bn, a big drop from the $1.8bn price it paid for the division nine years ago.
