US stocks are seen starting in the red Tuesday after a higher close on Monday as markets mull a clutch of big corporate stories and ahead of more earnings.

The Dow Jones closed yesterday up nearly 95 points and futures today are 58 points lower.

In focus in pre-market is Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA), which added over 4% to US$39.57 after it was reported that Comcast Corp (NASDAQ: CMCSA) was speaking to investment banks about possible financing to potentially crash the massive Disney-Fox deal.

Meanwhile, in other news, Zillow Group Inc (NASDAQ:ZG) crashed over 6% to US$51.95 after hours and may well be in focus again today.

The real estate company said chief financial officer Kathleen Philips will retire on May 31, but she will stay on as chief legal officer while the company searches for a new person for the role. Zillow also posted earnings and revenue that slightly beat expectations.

In other headline news, Japan's Takeda (TKPHF) said it has finalized a deal to buy Dublin-based biotech firm Shire Plc (LON: SHP) for £46bn (US$64.3bn)
