Stock futures pared gains on Tuesday after Goldman Sachs Group posted its second-quarter earnings.

Investors were also cautious ahead of the release of June retail sales.

S&P 500 futures were 4.6 points higher and were above fair value, a formula that evaluates pricing by taking into account interest rates, dividends and time to expiration on the contract. Dow Jones industrial average futures climbed 39 points, and Nasdaq 100 futures added 2.50 points.
