1. Earnings bonanza: The earnings season is in full swing.

Things kick off before the bell Monday with toymaker Hasbro and oilfield services firm Halliburton. Google parent company Alphabet, Whirlpool and TD Ameritrade will follow after the close.

Up later in the week are companies including AT&T, Harley-Davidson, JetBlue, Boeing, Coca-Cola, Facebook, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, Amazon, American Airlines, McDonald's, Starbucks and Twitter.

2. Global stock market overview: US stock futures were looking soft on Monday.

Most European markets dipped in early trading, with main indexes in Britain and France off 0.5%.

Asian markets ended the day with mixed results. The Nikkei in Japan dropped 1.3% while the Shanghai Composite surged 1.1%.

US market moves were muted last week. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 0.2%, while the S&P 500 was flat and the Nasdaq dropped 0.1%.

3. Stock market movers -- Ryanair, Fiat Chrysler, Ferrari: Shares in Ryanair dropped 6% after the low-cost carrier said that higher fuel costs, rising wages and strikes by pilots and regional air traffic controllers had caused its first quarter profit to drop 20% over the previous year.

Shares in Fiat Chrysler (FCA) were down 3% in Milan after the automaker announced the sudden resignation of Sergio Marchionne on Saturday after the longtime CEO suffered complications from surgery.

Replacing him will be the former boss of the automaker's Ram and Jeep brands, Mike Manley.

The company said in a statement that "unexpected complications arose while Mr. Marchionne was recovering from surgery and that these have worsened significantly in recent hours."

Marchionne, 66, will also leave his roles as chairman and chief executive at Ferrari, which was spun off from FCA several years ago. The luxury carmaker said Louis Camilleri, a Ferrari board member and chairman of Philip Morris International Inc., will become CEO.

Shares in Ferrari also declined 3%.

4. Watching Iran: US President Donald Trump has warned on Twitter that Iran could "suffer consequences the likes of which few have ever suffered before."

The tweet, which was posted late Sunday night, follows an apparent warning from Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, in which he cautioned that Americans "must understand that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace," according to Iranian state media reports.

Despite the dramatic rhetoric, US crude oil futures were little changed at $68.50 per barrel.

The United States is preparing to reimpose harsh sanctions on Iran that threaten its oil exports after the Trump administration pulled out of a nuclear deal with the country.

5. Transatlantic transactions: Shares in French IT services firm Atos slipped 5% in Paris after the company announced a plan to buy the US-based firm Syntel for $3.4 billion in cash.
