The ASX is set to surge with ASX futures up 0.91 per cent near 8.30 am AEDT.

The green tip follows a strong session in the US on Friday, buoyed by the country’s recent inflationary data which is nearing the Fed’s desired 2-3 per cent target band.

We had a red Friday here in Australia as people apparently missed that data – or waited to see what the US would do first.

What it did was pretty enthusiastic. The S&P 500 hit a year to date (YTD) high on Friday at 4595pts.

Here’s what stocks are catching eyes this morning.
