US STOCKS-Futures slightly higher after Dow's record run
U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher on Monday, building on a stellar run by the Dow industrials, which posted its eighth straight record closing high last week. * Dow's record run was powered by a robust July employment report on Friday that showed U.S. employers added more jobs than expected in the month. * The report is likely to clear the way for the Federal Reserve to announce a plan to start shrinking its $4.2 trillion bond portfolio in September, and could strengthen its case to raise rates for the third time this year in December.
