NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- U.S. stock futures were moving higher Friday as the U.S. economy expanded at its fastest pace since late 2011 as consumers pushed up spending, a key driver of U.S. growth.

The Commerce Department reported that third-quarter 2013 gross domestic product grew 4.1% year-over-year, a bump higher from a previous reading of 3.6%, and as personal consumption increased 2%.
