U.S. stock index futures were little changed on Thursday, ahead of data on the labor and housing markets, after the S&P 500 advanced for a third time in four sessions. Investors awaited weekly initial jobless claims data due out at 8:30 a.m. (1230 GMT) for signs of continuing strengthening in the labor market. Expectations call for 310,000 claims, up from the 297,000 in the previous week, which was the lowest in seven years. Existing home sales data for April is due later at 10:00 a.m.
