Before the bell:

Stocks were headed for a flat open as investors digested reports on U.S. gross domestic product and durable goods orders.
Futures pulled back from an earlier rise that was fueled by an austerity agreement reached among Greek leaders, the European Union and IMF.
Economy: The Commerce Department's final reading on first-quarter GDP came in at 1.9%. Economists had expected GDP to remain steady at the previous revision of 1.8%.
Durable goods orders rose 1.9% in May, slightly higher than the 1.5% increase economists had been expecting. That's an improvement from April's downwardly revised 2.7% decline in orders.
World markets:

Companies: Shares of Southern Union (SUG) jumped 15% in premarket trading, after Williams (WMB, Fortune 500) offered to buy the pipeline company for $39 per share in cash. That tops Energy Transer Equity's (ETE, Fortune 500) earlier bid for the company.
