Stocks poised to open higher after turbulent week

Stocks poised to open higher after turbulent week

Stocks are poised for a higher open, lifted by easing worries about Japan's nuclear crisis and corporate dealmaking.
AT&T says it will buy rival T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telecom AG. The deal, announced Sunday, is for $39 billion in cash and stock. It will make AT&T the largest U.S. cellphone company.
Ahead of the opening bell Monday, Dow Jones industrial average futures are up 110 points, or 0.9 percent, to 11,909. S&P 500 futures are up 15, or 1.2 percent, to 1,289. Nasdaq 100 futures are up 26, or 1.2 percent, to 2,248.
Big swings for stocks have become more common. Investors endured three straight days of 100 point moves last week. All three stock indexes ended the week lower after markets were battered by worries over Japan's ability to get its nuclear crisis under control.
